About the Author

Dr. Robert Kirby has spent many years researching the Avro Manchester, and this book is the result of his continued work, following its original publication in 1995. He lives in Taunton in Somerset.


"offers anecdotes from former crew members about harrowing ordeals over enemy territory, as well as flying the unreliable bomber in non combat situations. This is undoubtedly the definitive history of its less than legendary subject and it's a must for those interested in reading about the challenges that the bomber command faced"-- "Aviation History"
