Hachette’s “Avions de guerre” collection analyzes in turn the aircraft that have shaped, and continue to shape, the legend of fighter pilots and their planes.
Time for the twenty-ninth! Following the Rafale Dassault (France), which kicked off the series, the Supermarine Spitfire (United Kingdom), the Messerschmitt BF 109 (Germany) and many others, the “Avions de guerre” (warplanes) collection, published by Hachette, is now bringing out its 29th issue. An unmistakable sign is that the collection has a large and loyal audience, even though it was only launched at the end of 2017.
This latest issue features the Avro Lancaster, a British bomber dating back to 1941 in the service of the Royal Air Force. More than 7,000 of them were built, and it was one of the major contributors to the Allied victory, dropping no fewer than 600,000 tons of bombs to liberate Europe from the yoke of Nazi Germany.
For those who haven’t yet come across the collection (but can still catch up!), you should also know that the Mirage 2000, MiG-21, McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom and Super Etendard have each already been honored with an issue dedicated to them. In a nutshell, this is a collection that can’t be recommended more highly to warplane enthusiasts.
