Shrewsbury, 1st ed., 1996. 176 pp., photo-ills. D.j., 26 x 20cm. FINE. The Lend-Lease Bill was signed by Roosevelt in March 1941. It provided for the supply to overseas nations of US war material considered to be vital in the interest of American defence. For the first time full details of UK Lend-Lease contracts for aircraft are revealed, as is an insight into the massive organisation necessary to fly the war machines to the battle fronts. Lend-Lease was a vital weapon for victory. Included are the stories of the ferry pilots, their routes and their aircraft. There is also a complete check-list of all aircraft types supplied under the scheme throughout the war.
