RAF BOMBER COMMAND ALBUM
There has never been – and probably never will be – anything quite as remarkable as this Album of Aviator Profiles, highly accurate mini-biographies individually written and personally autographed by some of the greatest names in the history of the Second World War.
This extraordinary album contains the personally signed profiles of top-scoring, highly-decorated Aces and most distinguished aircrew. Aviators whose names are indelibly linked into the history books, men who fought the great aerial battles of WWII. It includes great leaders, outstanding combat fighter pilots and top-scoring Aces.
Individually written personal histories
Every one of these famous names has personally written their own notes, highly accurate biographies in their words and their wartime activity and achievements. Written solely and exclusively for this album, each aviator provides exciting biographical information; graphical descriptions of their most memorable combat; their choice of favourite aircraft flown, and why; and much more. Every profile also contains a personally selected photo!
Produced in the 1980’s with direct input from these highly decorated WWII aviators, we rarely see copies of this restricted Album and are therefore delighted to have THREE copies in stock!
This remarkable collection of TWENTY SIX Bomber Command aircrew includes some of the greatest names in the history of Bomber Command, including FIVE recipient of the Victoria Cross, two original Dambusters and many Pathfinders.
