Halifax and Wellington originally separate vols, 127pp re Halifax at War, >> This most versatile but much ­maligned aircraft played its part in a wide variety of roles and theatres of operations - from the flak-torn night skies over north-west Europe, to the swirling sands of the North African desert; from the bleak watery wastes of the North Atlantic, to top-secret 'cloak and dagger' operations. Former Halifax crewmen add their recollections to the visual his­tory provided here by the impres­sive selection of contemporary photographs and profiles. This for­mula provides a fascinating insight into the life and times of a famous warplane, and of those who flew in Halifaxes.129 more on the Wellington at War. >>> The Vickers Wellington was RAF Bomber Command's leading twin­ engined medium bomber in its day, which was from the outbreak of war until 1943, and from then on the Wellington's specialised vari­ants went on in service through the war period and beyond until the last one, a trainer, in 1953. It was remarkable for its geo­detic structure - a feature of con­struction developed by Dr. Barnes Wallis, that made the airframe capable of sustaining enormous punishment, and yet survive the journey back to base. 1.4 kgs to post.
