Bomber Barons
Bowyer, Chaz

William Kimber & Co 1983  1983 
  8vo hardcover 224pp index, b/w illus. very good, some foxing on outer edges / very good d/w. At the end of the Second World War over 55,000 air crew of Bomber Command had lost their lives, amounting to 70% of the total RAF casualties. Yet in contrast to Fighter Command, few bomber pilots were household names to the general public. However, within the ranks of the RAF itself, certain men stood out, gaining high reputations for their courage and leadership, a respect achieved regardless often of the decorations they had won or the number of sorties flown. These were the Bomber Barons. nnBomber Barons shows the development of Bomber Command from comparatively un-organized, non-cohesive raids of the early part of the war to the highly-trained and deadly offensive weapon it became under Sir Arthur Harris, from 1942, AOC-in-C of Bomber Command, the greatest baron of them all.

Aces, ’erks and Backroom Boys: Personal Stories from Britain’s Air War 1939-45
Smithies, Edward
ISBN: 0304359270
Cassell military 2002  2002 
  8vo softcover 306pp, b/w illus. very good, page edges browned. When we remember the Second World War in the air, we think of fighter pilots and bomber crews. But the men and women working as ground crew and in the aircraft factories who also played a crucial role in defeating Hitler. What was it like, making history? What sense did these individuals have of what they were doing, either at the time or later? Did they feel they were caught up in the tide of great events? Or were they simply doing their demanding and often dangerous duty? Its reviews speak eloquently on its behalf: 'Fascinating...this collection illuminates corners of the wartime world...it provides a valuable and often entertaining window' The Guardian 'The horrors have not been suppressed...Everyone who speaks was very young then. You sense their wonder that they did the things they recall' The Independent on Sunday
