Looking back at the future?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: V Bombers: Vulcan, Valiant and Victor (Profiles of Flight) (Kindle Edition)
When we were young the future seemed full of incredible machines and possibilities both exciting and frightening. The V bombers were the result of the technologies and ideologies of the post war period and in a way exemplified all that was exciting and all that was frightening. Dave Windle gives an insiders view as well as the wider view and ultimately how aircraft built to deliver Armageddon ultimately proved themselves in ways never imagined by those that designed them. Readable and informative, never set out to be a great piece of English literature but I would recommend it as an insight into the cold war to those too young to remember it as well as those of us for whom the memory fades.
