Best Sunderland books

What is the best Sunderland book? Seems that there are no really good technical books on it...

I have that already.:-)

In case of not really tech books, what book might have the most crew accounts? There seems to be Sunderland monographs by Ken Delve (Crowood), Chaz Bowyer and Andrew Hendrie.

Re: Best Sunderland books

As far as I was aware John Evans is the Sunderland expert and has published a few books on the topic - http://www.paterchurch-publications.co.uk/. I can't speak for the contents as it's not a field of personal interest.

For crew accounts I would highly recommend Chaz Bowyers book. Contains excellent accounts of specific areas, accompanied by a detailed collection of photo's.

Chapters are:
Introduction
Pedigree
First Impressions
Skippers View
On The Panel
Novice To Captain
Mods And Modes
The Daily Round
Libyan Episode
One Of Our Aircraft Is Missing
U-Boat Kill
Greater Love Has No Man
Ditched
Stachelschweim
Mercy Angel
Tropical Troubles
Peace And Goodwill
Swangsong
Finale

Re: Best Sunderland books

A couple of crew account books:

Ivan Southall (RAAF Sunderland pilot & post-war author of kid's books)
- Fly West

Norman Ashworth
- The Anzac Squadron - History of RAAF 461 Sqn

I have both on my shelves. Anzac Sqn is particularly memorable in the coverage of operations. The Southall book - I recall liking it - but haven't re-read it in the last 10 years, so can't recall much of it.

Col.
I'll second this endorsement.


The above is an interesting title for anyone looking at the construction process of Sunderlands.

And here is link to a download of the pilot note's for Sunderlands I & II
