Bristol Beaufighter: Wartime Operations of the Mighty Twin

The rugged Bristol Beaufighter was a multi-role aircraft. Operating as a heavily armed fighter, an anti-shipping strike aircraft, a torpedo bomber and a long-range intruder, it flew in every theatre of operations. It was the RAF’s first effective night-fighter with its airborne radar and cannons.

It excelled in Coastal Command’s Strike Wings and on anti-shipping operations in the Mediterranean and Aegean seas, and provided vital support for the ground forces in the North African desert campaigns. Over the jungles of Burma and the South-West Pacific, it became the scourge of the Japanese, as RAF and RAAF squadrons attacked the enemy’s supply lines on land and at sea.

With more than 130 images, this book showcases this remarkable aircraft, richly deserving of its place among the great aircraft of World War Two.
