V-Bombers tells of the design, development and operational careers of three of Britains finest post-war aeronautical products. The Vickers-Armstrongs Valiant, Avro Vulcan and Handley Page Victor captured the imagination of a generation, as the V-Force, for between them they were the British nuclear deterrent in those difficult, early Cold-War days.

Barry Jones tells the complete story here, from inception and design, through their operational service, to their retirement and preservation. He also covers the Short Sperrin, which provided much research information for the three bombers, in a fine book that will find a welcome place on the shelves of any post-war jet aircraft enthusiast.
