6116 Halifaxes were built and Ken Merrick’s book gives a detailed account of this versatile aircraft from inception, design and development and through its numerous operational roles. It is a fine tribute to the aircraft, those who built it, those who maintained it and those who flew in it.
If you only have room for one book on the Halifax, this is most definitely the one to have.
