Vulcan: God of Fire is a historical account of Britains nuclear deterrent force, the development of atomic/thermonuclear weapons and the bombers. It includes a description of the design, development and manufacture of the Vulcan, the flight testing programme and entry into RAF service.
There is also a full account of the Vulcans career, including its primary role as a nuclear bomber and as a key participant in the 1982 Falklands conflict. Further coverage includes the use of the Vulcan as a refuelling tanker and reconnaissance platform, and the recent project to restore a Vulcan to flying condition, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and public donations – Vulcan XH558.
Historical information is combined with first-hand accounts from former air and ground crews, and a full description of the service history/disposal of every Vulcan aircraft manufactured.
