Bomber Barons

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.

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

Following the success of Looking into Hell, published in 1995, Mel Rolfe has researched another twenty dramatic but true stories of gallantry in World War Two. Some of them defy belief - like the RAF bomb aimer who was blown out of his Liberator over Warsaw at 400ft without a parachute and made a poignant return in 1989 to witness the unveiling of a memorial on the crash site. Others defy logic - like two men of the same crew who survived a terrible crash, neither aware of the other's existence but both saved by a tolling of the same church bell.

  8vo hardcover 407pp index, b/w illus. very good / very good d/w. No other bombing campaign in World War II against a single target was pressed so relentlessly for so long, and at such a cost, as British Bomber Command's seven-month campaign to break the German will by destroying Berlin. More than 10,000 sorties were launched, more than 30,000 tons of bombs dropped. Six hundred and seven British aircraft were lost. Balancing the cost of the campaign against advantages gained, the official Royal Air Force historian concluded early on that the Battle of Berlin "was more than a failure. It was a defeat." Middlebrook ( The First Day on the Somme ) isn't so condemning, although he judges that Luftwaffe night-fighters in combination with ground anti-aircraft defenses hurt Bomber Command more than Bomber Command harmed Berlin. His straightforward narrative covers the 19 major raids, with a detailed description of three in particular, and includes recollections by British and German airmen as well as German civilians who weathered the storm that lasted throughout the winter of 1943-44. Photos. nCopyright 1988 Reed Business Information, Inc. nnProduct DescriptionnThe Battle of Berlin was the longest and most sustained bombing offensive against one target of World War II. 19 major raids between August 1943 and March 1944 and more than 10,000 aircraft sorties dropped over 30,000 tons of bombs on Berlin. The city was not destroyed, however, and the RAF lost over 600 aircraft and their crews. The controversy over whether the battle was a success or failure has continued to this day. The author has interviewed more than 400 people in this study in an attempt to bring together both sides of the story - the tactics of the bombing force and the experiences of ordinary people in the target city. The battle is described month by month, and tactical factors that helped first the bombers and then the night fighters are identified. The experiences of the people of Berlin are also recounted, showing how bombs destroyed homes and families, affected morale and reduced the German war effort. Martin Middlebrook is the author of many books on military history including "The First Day on the Somme", "The Bomber Command War" and "Operation Corporate", a study of the Falklands War.

Airlife Publishing 1991  1991 
  8vo hardcover 276pp index, b/w illus. very good / very good d/w. One of the major contributions to the success of Operation "Overlord" in 1944 was the extensive Allied bombing of the German Army's supply system in Northern France and Belgium. Point Blank and Beyond is a detailed account of the part played by bombers of the Royal Air Force and the 8th U.S. Army Air Force in this controversial campaign, known as the "Transportation Plan." During the preparation of his book, the author interviewed many former aircrew and French civilians, including resistance members. They have provided much valuable information on this largely unrecorded aspect of World War II.

Viking1990  1990 
  8vo hardcover 306pp index, b/w illus. very good / very good d/w. Selected from over 250 interviews, "War In The Air" tells the story of the war in the words of the people who fought it, who designed and built the aircraft, and who serviced and armed them. Their accounts reveal the divesity of people's experience of the war. Factory workers built aircraft, but also manned the Home Guard, firewatched and helped with the rescue services. Aircrew experienced the thrills and danger of combat and risked being shot down over enemy territory, imprisonment and the uncertainties of liberation. Ground crew and WAAF were expected to accompany their squadron overseas, through enemy infest waters. They are survivors - many of their friends and comrades died - and they live with the consequences of loss, and often with the injuries suffered in combat. Their recollections bring to life the experience of the last generation in British history to endure total war.
