No one has done more than Palmiro Campagna to document the story of Canada’s extraordinary Avro Arrow, a Cold War jet fighter years ahead of its time that was struck down by politicians before it could truly spread its wings. This latest work sheds new light on the Arrow’s fascinating saga, which continues to resonate more than six decades after its cancellation.
Andrew Chaikin, author of A Man on the Moon
Palmiro Campagna uses thoroughly researched and newly released documents to separate fact from fiction and puts to bed the old myths surrounding the Arrow and its cancellation. In addition, this second edition features newly discovered, and document supported, information about the American involvement in the Arrow’s cancellation.
