Publication year: 2013
Media class: Hardback
Publisher: Pen & Sword Aviation
This is an account of the largely forgotten heroes of 1 Group, RAF Bomber Command in the Second World War. The narrative moves at a lively pace which combines appropriate levels of detail regarding operations, aircraft, bases and incidents, in the wider context of the unfolding Second World War, set against a backdrop of policy failings and evolving successes, and more than anything, the sheer determination and bravery of young British, Commonwealth and Polish aircrews who never hesitated in giving everything to the cause of ultimate victory, regardless of the personal cost.
