The British-designed Canberra was adopted by air forces from South America to Africa and India, as well as Australia and New Zealand; it was also licence-built, as the Martin B-57.  It was involved in a number of conflicts with many of those users, the most intense of which was the USAF use in Vietnam, although Canberras were also on both sides in the India-Pakistan conflicts; a number of conflicts in South America saw Canberra involvement, the Argentinian Canberras flew ops against the British Task Force in the Falklands conflict.

This volume also looks at overall development of the Canberra, and the role of the Operational Conversion Unit in training both RAF and overseas aircrew. The Canberra was used extensively in trials and evaluation, and, with NASA, a small number of aircraft still perform this role (2022). The aircraft has attracted interest from enthusiasts, and this has ensured that a significant number of aircraft survive in museums and private collections, and a few are kept in flying condition.
