About 6,500 Lancaster bombers flew missions during the Second World War, but only 35 aircraft managed to complete 100 ops, the rest having been shot down, damaged beyond repair or worn out before reaching the landmark. This book tells the story of each of those venerable planes, detailing the raids that they undertook between 1942 and 1945, identifying the men that flew them and including personal photographs and first-hand accounts from the aircrews.
