4.0 out of 5 stars Photo-Guide to an RAF Heavyweight! 29 Nov 2009
By Michael OConnor - Published on
Part of the 'Living History' series, this 1996 Howell Press book by Dan Patterson and Ron Dick presents a photo-and-text introduction to the Avro Lancaster. The RAF's heavy hitter of World War II, the Lanc came to personify Bomber Command and its remorseless nocturnal bombing campaign against Germany.

Ron Dick, a former RAF Air Vice-Marshal, weighs in first with a 12-page summary of the Lanc's development and combat career. The remaining 52 pages are given over to Dan Patterson's evocative color photographs of surviving Lancasters, divided between close-up shots of the cockpit, turrets, crew positions, etc. and general view of the Lancs in the air and on the ground. One shot in particular - showing a group of re-enactors posing under the bomb bay - is especially useful in illustrating the size of the the Lancaster. That sucker was huge!

Bomber fans will enjoy the Patterson/Dick tribute. The short but informative text and compelling photos make for a thumb's up rating! Recommended.
