The Supermarine Walrus: The Story of a Unique Aircraft
by Nicholl, G.W.R.
xi, 211 pp. "The development and operational history of one of the most versatile aeroplanes ever built, the Vickers Supermarine Walrus. Designed by R. J. Mitchell, famous for the immortal Spitfire and the Schneider Trophy winners of the early '30s, its service life must be amongst the longest and it certainly performed a greater variety of military tasks in World War II than any other aircraft. A true amphibian, it was catapulted from ships, lurched aloft off breaking seas or staggered into the air from jungle strips, landed on lagoons, icefloes and scrubland; it dive bombed, reconnoitred, fought and achieved an astonishing record of rescue work."
