To Hell and Back. True life experiences of bomber comand at war
Rolfe, Mel
ISBN: 1898697701
Grub Street 1998  1998 
  8vo hardcover 192pp index, b/w illus. very good / very good d/w. 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.

The Berlin Raids: R.A.F. Bomber Command Winter 1943/44
Middlebrook, Martin
ISBN: 0670806978
Viking 1988  1988 
  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.

Point Blank and Beyond
Lacey-Johnson, Lionel
ISBN: 1853101427
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.

War In the Air
Smithies, Edward
ISBN: 0670831506
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.

No Place for Chivalry
Goodrum, Alastair
Grub Street UK 2005 
 Hardcover Inscription & author signature on the title page. 192 crisp pp, photos amidships, just a feather under 500g for posting. No Place for Chivalry encapsulates the story of the air defense of England against attack by night. By taking the area covered by RAF Wittering and Digby sectors, looking at the action of night fighter squadrons operating from those stations and their satellite airfields, the way the battle developed, its timeline of events, the events themselves and the organization of those involved, a coherent picture of how the night air defense of Britain evolved is formed. The narrative is pitched at a level of detail and with such human interest content that it enables readers not only to grasp what is happening and why but also to feel the tensions, frustrations and euphoria of success that the aircrews felt at the time. The reader gets a view from the cockpit or gun turret, to 'meet' and 'fly' with the men of both sides who fought in the air at night - men whose moral standards on the ground were above reproach but, when fighting in the night sky, gave no quarter. Faults? trivial bump to upper right rear corner.  Excellent/Very Good/Excellent

Halifax Wellington
Rapier, Brian & Bowyer, Chaz
The Promotional Reprint Company UK  
 Hardcover Originally as separate issues I'd say "Halifax at War" & "Wellington & now together in this very interesting volume. As with all things Bowyer's engaged in there's interest aplenty from a technical, operational & personal point of view as well as a extensive photo samples. 256pp, heading for 1.5kg to post. Faults? upper right corners bumped, a few splots on compressed pp edges at the side, o/wise it's a treat. Pub maybe 1994. comments >> This most versatile but much­maligned aircraft played its part in a wide variety of roles and theatres of operations - from the flak-torn night skies over north-west Europe, to the swirling sands of the North African desert; from the bleak watery wastes of the North Atlantic, to top-secret 'cloak and dagger' operations. Former Halifax crewmen add their recollections to the visual his­tory provided here by the impres­sive selection of contemporary photographs and profiles. This for­mula provides a fascinating insight into the life and times of a famous warplane, and of those who flew in Halifaxes. Wellington at War. >>> The Vickers Wellington was RAF Bomber Command's leading twin­ engined medium bomber in its day, which was from the outbreak of war until 1943, and from then on the Wellington's specialised vari­ants went on in service through the war period and beyond until the last one, a trainer, in 1953. It was remarkable for its geo­detic structure - a feature of con­struction developed by Dr. Barnes Wallis, that made the airframe capable of sustaining enormous punishment, and yet survive the journey back to base.  Very Good/Very Good

Birth of a Legend The Spitfire
Quill, Jeffrey
Quiller Press UK 1986 2nd Impression
 Hardcover ex-lib & some nitwit has removed the 1st page, so low price for this iconoic Quill book. In the pre-war years aerial races were a hit with the famous Schneider Trophy; enter R. J. Mitchell who designed the Supermarine S 4 and anyone with an interest in aircraft design will instantly recognise this as a very early Spitfire with floats instead of wheels. The trophies were won and the development continued right up until the outbreak of World War Two when suddenly the requirements of a nation at war became very different from winning silver cups. Europe had entered into a fight for its own existence and the Supermarine - so far ahead of its time when it first appeared, coupled with a 12 cylinder Merlin engine had become the Spitfire. about the author >>> Jeffrey Quill was the second man to fly the aircraft after Vickers' chief test pilot, "Mutt" Summers, at school constant aerial activity overhead quickened the already air-minded Quill's resolve to take a career in the Royal Air Force, on joining his flying ability was assessed as "exceptional". In September 1932 he joined No 17 Squadron RAF at Upavon, where he began flying Bristol Bulldog fighters, technical development was his forte & right up to 1940 Quill was in charge of development and production flying but gained short release to get combat experience. After the war & by the time he retired to fly a desk Quill had flown more than 50 variants of this magical aircraft. This is Quill's second book & a gem.  Good/Very Good

Island in the Sky
Gann, Ernest
Hodder & Stoughton  1955 
 Hardcover Island in the Sky was the first book to be written about the Army Air Transport Command during WWII. It is also the first book of Ernest Gann's to be made into a motion picture that starred John Wayne. Island in the Sky is not a war story, but based on a true incident that happened in the frozen lands of Northern Canada. It is a tale of survival and comradeship. review >>> Gann was a left-seat man and he was able to tranfer his need for perfection to the printed page. A veteran pilot will find no flaws or mistakes or stupid exaggerations in the technical descriptions in this book. Ernie Gann will put you in the left seat and make you sweat. He will give you the sense and the thrill of flying a four-engine transport under dubious conditions in 1944. 193pp less than 500g for post - faults? dj wear (see pic please)  Good/Good/Fair

Phoenix Triumphant The Rise and Rise of the Luftwaffe
Hooton, ER
Arms and Armour Press UK 1994 
 Hardcover 320 pp in great order, 800g for post. British historian Hooton uses published sources and archival material to tell a familiar story from a fresh perspective. He describes the development of German air power (Luftwaffe) that began in 1930, well before Hitler's seizure of power, and reached its zenith with the destruction of France in 1940. He focuses on organization, training and equipment, and provides a solid analysis of the Luftwaffe's operational employment, including the occupations of Austria and Czechoslovakia. He also explains how the Germans circumvented the restrictions of the Versailles Treaty to build up the Luftwaffe during the interwar years. The Luftwaffe was more than a ground-support force, the author maintains; its primary mission was to secure air superiority. author info > Edward R. Hooton is a defence writer, who has authored multiple books including publications for the Jane's Information Group.  Excellent/Very Good

UNDER THE GUNS OF THE RED BARON The Complete Record of Von Richthofen’s Victories and Victims Fully Illustrated
Franks Norman, Giblin Hal and McCrery Nigel
Caxton  2000 
 Hardcover 1.2 kg, 224pp with numerous illustrations throughout, faults? two small repaired tears atop dj at spine & flapfold. Manfred Freiherr von Richthofen was the most feared and celebrated of all German pilots in World War I, and has become one of the iconic figures of history. This book, by three respected historians, has researched in detail the lives of all of his 123 victims (over 100 of whom are depicted), and provides a blow-by-blow account of their encounter with the great man - a unique compilation of material. reviewer says >>> The book itself is thoroughly well researched,the authors having combed both British and German records to authenticate MvR`s claims. The result is probably the definitive listing of the 80 victories. However, it goes further by giving the biographies, and wherever possible, the photographs of each of the RFC/RNAS/RAF crewmen.   Very Good/excellent/Good

Rather than concentrate solely on the exploits of RAF Fighter Command, the author's narrative tells the wider story of the battle. This includes the Luftwaffe's viewpoint and the contributions made to victory by Bomber and Coastal Commands; and the British aircraft industry's efforts to supply the RAF with desperately needed fighter aircraft.
