Drawing on an immense range of archival records, memoirs and photographs collected over decades of diligent research, author Carl Vincent provides a unique insight into some of the men and machines covered under the broad title Canadian Aircraft of WWII. Each entry’s narrative is loaded with history, much of it previously unpublished and is illustrated by rare and relevant photos plus deeply researched large-format colour profiles, all complemented by highly informative captions.
Discover how the oddball little Fleet Fort came into its new role, why the Bolingbroke was much more than “just a Canadian Blenheim”, when chewing gum could prove vital for a Sunderland crew, who was one of the Allies’ premier train-busters, and much more . . .
80 pgs, 8 ½ x 11, landscape format, softcover, 70+ photos, (4 in colour), 45 large colour profiles illustrations and 4 colour maps.
