I've just finished Leo McKinstry's book on the Lancaster. Does anyone know of an available book giving the history of the Halifax?

I can confirm Merrick's book is absolutely first class.

If you want a book dealing with the lesser known use of the Halifax on special duties operations, try "Flights of the Forgotten" by Merrick. This deals with SD operations in total but has a big chunk about the Halibag.
