1 Rapier, Brian J. Edited by Alan Hollingsworth. Dust jacket art by Michael Stride. HALIFAX AT WAR.
Ian Allan, Shepperton, 1990, second impression. 
128 pp, 4to (11 11/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0711015546 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, maps, reproductions. "Alongside the Avro Lancaster, Handley Page's Halifax bore the brunt of 'Bomber' Harris' strategic air offensiv e against Nazi Germany, and over 6,000 were built, running to more than 20 variants. Between 1941 and 1945, Bomber Command's Halifaxes dropped over 227,000 tons of bombs on Axis targets and flew almost 80,000 sorties. In (this book) Brian R a p i e r e xamines the varying roles and theatres of operations in which this most versatile but much-maligned aircraft played its part - from the flak-torn night skies over northwest Europe to the swirling sands of the North American desert; f r om t he b le ak wa tery wastes of the North Atlantic to top-secret 'cloak & dagger' operations. Supported by the lucid recollections of former Halifax crewmen and an impressive selection of photographs and tone profiles, (it) provides a fascin at ing in sig ht int o t h e l ife of this famous bomber and those who flew and died in her." Slight wrinkling at bottom of spine, light waviness to fore-edge of textblock, slight bump at top/bottom of boards. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top edg e. Ver y go od/V er y Go od+
