Praise

“As with all books in the Osprey Combat Aircraft series, there are several pages of color aircraft profiles, in this case by aviation artist Chris Davey. These highly detailed profiles chronicle the Vulcan from its early days sporting the glossy white anti-flash paint to the time when doctrinal changes dictated a switch to overall earthtone camouflage. Each color plate is accompanied by a comprehensive caption. The Avro Vulcan was fielded to fulfill a specific mission, was regularly adapted to the ever changing arena of the Cold War, and finally bowed out after decades of frontline service. Andrew Brookes does an excellent job covering the history of the operational employment of the Vulcan, both the machine itself and the men who flew it, all the while keeping the global context in mind. A first class addition to any Aviation Bookcase.” -Logbook
