Meet the Author

Theo Boiten studied history at Groningen University in the Netherlands. He graduated in 1992, specialising in an overall history of the developments of the night air war over the Third Reich during the Second World War. Since graduating, he has worked in his spare time on his doctoral thesis at Leiden University, on the sea warfare in the North Sea during World War II. He currently works as a freelance historian and interviewer and has written five books: Blenheim Strike, Nachtjagd; The Night Fighter versus Bomber War over the Third Reich 1939-45; Raiders of the Reich: Air Battle Western Europe 1942-1945 (which he co-authored with Martin Bowman); Bristol Blenheim and Night Airwar. He lives in Almere, near Amsterdam.

Martin Bowman's interest in World War II and contemporary British and US aviation was fired by the proliferation of US and RAF air bases in his native East Anglia. His quest has taken him to 18 countries, including the USA, Africa, Australia and Russia. He has flown into the world's war zones of Mogadishu, Somalia and Bosnia, and has participated in German and USAFE missions aboard C-160 and C-130 Hercules aircraft. He is the author of sixty aviation books about US Air Force/US Navy and Royal Navy/RAF operations, as well as photographic books on military subjects and commercial airliners. For many years he has been a frequent contributor of photographic and written articles to Flight International, Rolls-Royce Magazine and Aeroplane Monthly in Britain, and to Air Combat, Air Classics and Air Progress in the United States. He continues to explore all matters related to aviation and has suffered, for his art — on one occasion, notably, he was catapulted from the USS John F Kennedy in the Mediterranean. Recently, he was appointed as an official researcher for DERA. He lives in Norwich, Norfolk.
