Blenheim Squadrons of World War Two by Jon Lake
Book DescriptionThe Bristol Blenheim was the result of a speculative private venture, rather than a design built to a specific Air Ministry request. First flown in 1935 its impressive performance led to a large production run. It was the Blenheim that performed the first recce and bomber raids on Germany at the beginning of the war. It continued in front-line service in Africa and the Far East well into 1943. This volume on the Bristol Blenheim includes interviews with aircrews, unit histories and describes the tactics used in combat with Blenheims. Scale drawings of the fighter and bomber variants are presented and there is a section on uniforms as worn by Blenheim aircrew.
