Bomber Command: Reflections of War

This is the first volume of a five part work that provides a comprehensive insight to the experiences of Bomber Command’s pilots and aircrew throughout World WarTwo. From the early wartime years when the RAF’s first attempts to avengeGermany’s onslaught were bedevilled by poor navigation and inaccurate bombing,to the final winning onslaught that finally tamed Hitler in his Berlin lair, these volumes trace the true experiences of the men who flew the bombers. Hundreds of first-hand accounts are complemented by the author’s background information that put each narrative into wartime perspective. Every aspect of Bomber Command's operational duties are covered; day and night bombing, precision low-level strikes, mass raids and operations throughout all wartime theatres. 

This volume is full of accounts that tell of the camaraderie amongst the crews, moments of sheer terror and the stoic humour that provided the critical bond. The five volumes of this work provide the most vivid and comprehensive work on the outstanding part played by RAF Bomber Command in their vital role in the destruction of the Third Reich.
