Post war Ex RAF Nav/Rad myself - this book is obviously of great historical interest to myself. The book was S/H in good condition and sent immediately.

The Full Monty warts and all - a team effort right from a very shaky beginning to becoming a first rate class act very absorbing and revealing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to night fighters 28 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There are very few decent books concerning night fighters of WWII. Those that exist tend to be very expensive. I thought this book was excellent. Whilst concentrating on the flying career of Bob Braham, there is enough technical information in there to appreciate why certain things were done in the development of aircraft and tactics.

This book covers a subject rarely touched upon. You will find dozens of books on 'The battle of Britain', but little on night fighting over Europe. In reading this book, you will also find out the story of a little-known fighter ace. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very satisfied 9 Mar 2014
By Vince G Petrie - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This used book was in very good condition with no damage. There were several pages where a previous reader had made notes or underlined some text in blue ink. But that didn't bother me. The book was well researched and informative on one of my favorite subjects - war bird pilots. However, the author was prone to redundancy and frequently repeated himself which was distracting. This hard to find book has been on my list-to-read for years. I was happy to find a good used copy at a reasonable price.
