Bloody Paralyser: The Giant Handley Page Bombers of the First World War tells the story of the largest British bomber of the First World War and the men who flew them. In 1915, the biggest plane ever seen in Britain took flight for the first time, a twin-engine monster with a 100-foot wingspan, designed to be a ‘Bloody Paralyser’ to the Germans. Operating mainly at night, the Handley Page bombers attacked German and German-occupied towns and cities, disrupting the enemy’s industry and crippling its war effort. The men that flew in the ‘Bloody Paralysers’ were the forerunners of the crews of Bomber Command in the Second World War and now their story is told in their own words.
