Wimpy - A Detailed Illustrated History of the Vick
by Taschen, Dr Angelika

ISBN: 9781909808140
PUBLISHER: Grub Street
FORMAT: Hardback
PAGES: 256
PUBLICATION DATE: 30.09.2014


DESCRIPTION:
To date there has been a paucity of books on this remarkable aircraft. Among its claims to fame are the following: the only RAF bomber to serve in its original role from first day of war to last, and in every theatre; the first type to bomb Germany; the first type to bomb Berlin; the first type to drop the 4,000lb 'Cookie' bomb; and so on. A serious study is well overdue, drawing not just on official documentation but relying greatly on personal accounts and anecdotes from the veterans who were there, both air and ground crew. Operational detail will include, for example, the early bombing campaigns, the switch to main force activity, the use of OTU aircraft and crews on operations, the protection of Atlantic and Mediterranean convoys, and the continued use as bomber and transport aircraft. A worthy tribute, then, replete with original photographs throughout.
