The full story of the "Wimpy," aka the Flying Cigar The Vickers Wellington was a twin-engine, long range medium bomber, used as a night bomber in the early years of World War II, and the only British bomber to be produced throughout the whole of the war. This colorful history combines narrative description and condensed history of construction, combat career, and postwar service to tell the complete, concise story of one of the world's most famous aircraft and one of the finest bombers of World War II. There are superlative photos of the "Wimpy" with detailed and expert captions and other material, and many accounts of the aircraft in service and in combat by the men who were there in all theaters around the world—Coastal Command, Bomber Command, and 2nd TAF, in Europe, the Mediterranean, and Asia.
