TON-UP LANCS - Special signed edition

Renowned historian Norman Franks detailed book focuses on the story of the Avro Lancasters that completed one hundred sorties.

Thirty-five histories are recorded in this book with stories and personal photographs from the aircrew that flew these aircraft.

The most famous Lancaster, R5868 Queenie, can still be seen in the Bomber Command Hall at RAF Museum, London. Norman Franks also examines the controversial accounting of the number of operations flown by detailing each raid undertaken by pilots and crew during 1942-1945 including sorties over Hitler s Third Reich, Northern Italy and during support missions before and after D-Day.

With over 200 photographs reproduced throughout the book and an account from Sgt Ron Clark DFC, who flew EE139 Phantom of the Ruhr on its first sortie, Ton-Up Lancs is a fascinating tribute to both the aircraft and aircrew that participated in Bomber Command duties.
