A decade since its first publication, Grub Street are proud to present TonUp Lancs as a paperback for the first time. Originally a revised study following its first appearance under the Claims to Fame series, the book focuses on the story of the Avro Lancasters that completed one hundred sorties.

Thirtyfive histories are recorded in this book with stories and personal photographs from the aircrew that flew these aircraft.

Renowned author Norman Franks also examines the controversial accounting of the number of operations flown by detailing each raid undertaken by pilots and crew during 19421945 including sorties over Hitler's Third Reich, Northern Italy and during support missions before and after DDay.

Norman Franks is a wellrespected and worldrenowned author and has over seventy books to his name. Author of Battle of the Airfields, The Greatest Air Battle, Buck McNair, Beyond Courage and Aircraft versus Aircraft, he has also been coauthor of many titles with distinguished fighter pilots such as Neville Duke (War Diaries of Neville D...
