It now is a technical and historical study, with a large number of illustrations & photographs chosen from about 2000 photographs supplied by individual photographers. The selection was difficult, but we have tried to present a representative overview of the various series of 2D2 as part of their normal, or unusual, service in almost all of the areas they employed. . 1st Edition.
