The Vickers-Armstrong's Wellington was unique among British bombers in that it saw service throughout World War II. Designed by the legendary Barnes Wallis, it formed the backbone of Bomber Command's onslaught against Germany in the early years of the war. Wellingtons could be seen all over the world, scouring the oceans for U-boats ; and they performed an invaluable service in training, both in Operational Training Units and as flying classrooms. The author traces the operational career of this remarkable aeroplane, drawing on many rare and previously unpublished photographs.
