"The best sort of popular military history."—Times Literary Supplement. "...will be referred to again and again."—Air Classics. Those who flew the bombing missions from British airfields in World War Two lived through an utterly unique experience, conducting an epic campaign that raged day and night. A remarkable testimony to this turbulent time—and what it felt like to be part of that struggle—features contemporary, personal documents from English and American flight crews, as well as over 160 unforgettable images from during and after the war. The British RAF Bomber Command carried out sustained nighttime raids on Germany, inflicting wide pattern destruction, while America's fledgling 8th Air Force successfully took on the challenge of precision daylight bombing—at a huge cost of lives and equipment. Poignant and significant.
