The Defiant. By Day. by Night.

Recommended Posts

Just to announce that I am currently working on the developmental, political and operational history of the Boulton Paul Defiant, for release ( all being well ) late summer 2018. The book is being published by Frontline/Pen & Sword, and will be about 80,000 words in length with 100+ images. But that's a ball park figure as I have been given free reign to make this book as large as possible. Hand over date to the publisher is 1st December 2017.

There will be a complete list of claims made by Defiant crews, and a roll of honour listing the 200+ aircrew lost on type; the latter will where possible, have an image of each airman. Other areas covered will include a section on aviation archaeology, and modelling the Defiant.

 

If anyone wants more information, please drop me a line, and thanks for looking.

 

Regards

 

Andy

Best of luck with your endeavours. I'm sure it will be a fitting tribute to those often overlooked.

Ideally it would give the code letter for Defiant N1765, YD-Something of 255 Sqn. Shot down a He 111 in May 41, but I'll buy it anyway. Lots of construction/walkround photos please!
