V-Bombers: Valiant, Vulcan and Victor
Author: Barry Jones

V-Bombers tells of the design, development and operational careers of three of Britain’s finest post-war aeronautical products. The Vickers-Armstrong’s 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 enthusiast with an interest in post-war jet aircraft.
