    Book details

Aircraft Salvage in the Battle of Britain and Blitz will comprise of some 140-150 images of the work of RAF and civilian salvage squads during the Battle of Britain, the Blitz and beyond. The images will depict losses across Britain, both RAF and German, during this period. Each picture will tell its own story, and will be fully captioned with historical detail. The author will be covering a topic that has rarely been examined in this detail. Each section will have a short introduction and the images will include those of shot down aircraft, including relatively intact machines, badly damaged/destroyed wreckages, photographs of pilots and other related illustrations. All images are from the author's unique collection of wartime photographs of Luftwaffe losses, collected from a variety of sources across some thirty-five years of research.

Andy Saunders is a freelance writer and researcher specialising in military aviation history with particular emphasis on the Battle of Britain and the air war over north-west Europe 1939-1945.

  • By Paul Wain on 3 March 2017

    A well written and informative book by Andy Saunders for any Battle of Britain enthusiast. Packed with great pictures of Battle of Britain Aircraft crashes from both sides most of which i've never seen before and believe me I have seen many many World War 2 photographs."Aircraft Salvage in the Battle of Britain and the Blitz" Is one of those books you just can't put down and you don't want it to end!

    This is the second of Andy Saunders books I have purchased on this theme and I'm really glad I did. In a book packed with pictures it explains the work of the salvage crews who recovered German and British downed aircraft from across the country (but mainly in the south due to the theater of Battle) during the Battle of Britain. Each image is accompanied by a short explanation of the crash and the subsequent work, often difficult and sometimes dangerous, that went into its salvage. Some aircraft were recovered almost intact whereas with others there was so little left it was a case of filling in a large whole and little more. As I said in another review of Andy Saunders book 'Luftwaffe Bombers In the Battle Of Britain' , this book is invaluable to me as a B.O.B enthusiast and diorama maker. If you have an interest in this pivotal , legendary Battle then this is a book for you!Uk Union Rob

    Delightfully nerdy source of rare information. Mum and I were kept fascinated as her father did this in the war. Presented with accessible captions and text

    Everything you need to know regarding aircraft salvage during World War Two. Thoroughly interesting read on this subject.

    Very interest, I did not realise of the large amount of salvage planes that were just lying around during the war & even after the war.

    It was of great interest to me as I did this task when I was in the Royal Air Force in the 1950s
