Fairey Swordfish in British, Canadian & Netherlands Service in World War Two

Author: Robinson, Neil
Publisher: AIRfile Publications
Year: 2014
ISBN: 9780957551312
Binding: Soft Cover
Book Condition: As New
Size: 4to - over 9" - 12" tall
New book, 72 pages. One of World War Two's most iconic and recognisable aircraft, the Fairey Swordfish saw frontline service from the start to the finish of the conflict, although its role changed from a Torpedo and Reconnaissance bomber operating off the Royal Navy's Fleet carriers, to an equally important convoy escort and anti-submarine bomber, flying from the smaller Escort carriers in the second half of the war. Split into six main sections, starting with the colourful days of peace from 1936 to 1939; then the early war years from 1939 to late 1940; the Taranto raid; the sinking of the Bismark; the Channel Dash; and finally the change of role from 1943 until the end of the war. This book includes over 50 pages of full colour profile and 4-view illustrations with AIRfile's usual comprehensive captions and over 40 archive photographs, also comprehensively captioned. By the end of World War Two, there were still 13 operational squadrons flying the Swordfish - the last operational squadron not being disbanded until 21 may 1945.
