DESCRIPTION: This book is both incredibly good value for money, and 
the definitive account of the design and development of the iconic 
Vulcan V-Bomber.  Anyone who has seen and heard a Vulcan at low level 
will never forget this fantastic aircraft – Most Highly Recommended.

At the end of WWII a new and very different war was to begin. It was 
the first war where the protagonists each held weapons of such 
awesome power neither wished to use them because of the devastating 
retaliation that would descend on them. It was a stalemate that held 
the world in a form of uneasy peace where there would still be some 
very hot surrogate wars but the main population of the world was at 
peace, depending on their warriors to continue to stand the enemy off.

Britain ended WWII almost bankrupt but was still able to run three 
very advanced bomber designs and bring all three into service as the 
famous V-Bombers. The Valiant came first, was the most conventional 
early jet design and was soon relegated to the equally important role 
of tanker to refuel the Victor and Vulcan in the air. The Victor 
offered a unique and highly innovative crescent wing, with enhanced 
performance. It also was to later serve its final years as a valuable 
and effective aerial tanker. The Vulcan was a semi-tailess delta 
design and the most advanced of the machines. Ironically, its only 
missions, where it dropped bombs in anger, was as a conventional bomb 
delivery system, flying some 8,000 miles to drop its bombs on the 
only Falklands airfield capable of supporting fast jets, making a 
great propaganda victory, and an important contribution to the 
ejection  of the Argentine bandits who had invaded the British 
territory in the South Atlantic.
