C-130 Hercules book recommendations please

Recommended Posts

Can you give me your thoughts on some Herc books please. I assume there is not a lot out there for modelling referencing, although the usual places to go to show some historical and story/memories books. I’m looking at something with decent RAF content throughout the ages if it exists and decent photo’s of down the back.

Out of the C-130 books on my bookshelf I would suggest the following two as having the best RAF coverage but obviously there are probably others out there.


Hercules the C-130 in RAF Service by Tim Lamming is basically all captioned images and takes you up to just after the Gulf War - not suggesting this link as the best place to buy the book but it gives an idea of what is out there  -  https://www.abebooks.co.uk/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=1206997216&searchurl=bi%3D0%26ds%3D30%26bx%3Doff%26sortby%3D20%26tn%3DHercules%3A%2BThe%2BC-130%2Bin%2BService%26recentlyadded%3Dall&cm_sp=snippet-_-srp1-_-title1


C-130 Hercules In The RAF by Clive Bennet is a bit (but not much) more text based but still well illustrated and covers from entry to service up until a year or two ago - again a link to sellers with the same proviso as above  -  https://www.abebooks.co.uk/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=30367015256&searchurl=kn%3DC-130%2BHercules%2Bin%2BThe%2BRAF%2BBook%2B%7C%2BBennett%2BClive%26sortby%3D17&cm_sp=snippet-_-srp1-_-title1
