The Armstrong Whitworth Albemarle is something of an ‘odd man out’ in the list of British World War Two military aircraft. It was manufactured entirely in a special factory as sub-contract work, to save light alloys it was intended to make use of steel tube and wood in its construction, and its service career was undistinguished. As a result the Albemarle is a rather forgotten aircraft and yet it made an important contribution during the latter part of the conflict. This new Warpaint will hopefully make enthusiasts more aware of the background and career of this unusual aeroplane. This book is written by Tony Buttler and is superbly illustrated by Mark Rolfe.
