Developed from the underperforming twin-engined Manchester, the Avro Lancaster was the RAF’s most successful heavy bomber of World War II, forming the backbone of Bomber Command during the large-scale night bombing campaign against occupied Europe. While Britain was unable to hit back on the ground, the Lancaster enabled Britain to take the fight to Germany. Its success meant that it was produced in massive numbers, with more than 7,300 built up to VE-Day.

This complete illustrated guide to one of Britain’s most iconic aircraft explores its history, strengths, weaknesses, and combat performance in the war that would make it legendary. Drawing on a wealth of research, stunning illustrations, and contemporary photographs, this book reveals how the Lancaster became a symbol of British resistance before going on the offensive against Germany in bombing attacks such as the famous Dambusters raid.
