Release Date: September 12, 1997
Following the end of WWII, Britain developed and maintained a huge fleet of technically-advanced jet bomber aircraft. Their sole purpose was to deliver nuclear weapons into the heart of the Soviet Union should the need arise, with crews being kept on constant alert. Laming tells how and why the V-Force was created, explains how Britains nuclear deterrent was kept ever-ready for action, and fully details Avro Vulcan, Handley Page Victor, and Vickers Valiant aircraft.
