Be the first to review this product

Of the 7,953 Bomber Command aircraft lost on night operations during World War II, an estimated 5,833 fell victim to Luftwaffe night fighters. In this detailed re-enactment of the air war over Western Europe and the raids flown by the men of RAF Bomber Command, the author has pieced together official data and the words and memories of the pilots and air crew who took part in 15 chapters detailing many unique experiences during the night bombing raids that were hurled against Hitler's war machine. They span the period between November 1939 and 1945 and the stories include The First 1,000 Bomber Raid; Mine Laying in Danzig Bay; Warriors For The Working Day and Twelve Lancasters went for Augsburg. These truly epic stories are an appropriate epitaph to the men of RAF Bomber Command.
