Description

The Stirling has come in for a lot of Flak over the years, both literally and metaphorically. Hampered by a poor service ceiling and a Dastardly and Muttley style undercarriage, it has always lived in the shadow of the more illustrious Lancaster and Halifax. However, most crews that flew the Stirling were very fond of the aircraft and although its capabilities as a bomber were never as strong as its contemporaries, it blossomed into an extremely useful glider tug and Special Duties aircraft towards the end of the war. (This aspect is covered in the second volume on the aircraft).
As usual in this series, the publishers devote most of the space to high-res original wartime photos, which are examined very closely to pick out details that have been hiding in plain sight for over 70 years.
