For a slender coffee-table book, this is surprisingly good. Nicely produced on good paper that takes photographs well, the book tells the story of the development of first the British strategic bomber types in general, and then the development of the Lancaster through its earlier twin-engined variant the Manchester, then on through its post-war incarnation as the Lincoln, with mention of its transport variants the York and the Lancastrian, and its final development as the Shackleton. There is a surprising amount of unit information and sheer anorakism, too. ( )
