Aston, Bourne End, 1st ed., 1992. 216 pp., numerous photo-ills. D.j., 28 x 20cm. FINE. In British aviation annals, the name Handley Page is synonymous with large aircraft designs such as the Hinaidi, Heyford, Hampden, Harrow, Halifax, Hastings, Hermes and Victor. They were also the first British bombers capable of implementing a true Allied strategic bombing policy, carrying the war deeper into hostile skies attempting to cripple enemy industrial capacity. Post-war, these same aircraft were amongst the first to initiate commercial aerial transport services throughout the world. Here, the full development and operational employment of the so-termed ‘Bloody Paralysers’ are described in great detail, including technical data, unit histories and operations, production data, combined with first-hand accounts by ex-HP crews.
