The book is a treasure for the historian wanting to fill in the gaps that are sometimes left by other books and records.
It certainly filled in all the gaps and was an exceptional source of facts and figures - dates and times first class.

This book lists every plane loss and the fate of the aircrews in those planes in the middle period of World War II. If you are interested in this topic, this book is essential, if not, you should not purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Reference 20 Feb 2014
By Jason Wisniewski - Published on Amazon.com
"Royal Air Force Fighter Command Losses of the Second World War: Vol. 2 - Operational Losses: Aircraft and Crews 1942-1943" by Norman L. R. Franks is an excellent reference for those searching for information on RAF Fighter Command losses over Europe during the period 1942 to 1943. The book lists losses by date, including squadron, aircraft type (e.g., Spitfire Mk V), pilot name, aircraft number, and reason for the loss. Chapters are: (1) the Non-Stop Offensive Continues and the Channel Dash, (2) Ramrods and Rodeos, (3) May to mid-June 1942, (4) Mid-June to July 1942, (5) August and Dieppe, (6) Disaster over Brittany, (7) October to December 1942, (8) January to March 1943, (9) April and May 1943, (10) June and July 1943, (11) Late Summer 1943, (12) Autumn 1943, and (13) Final Weeks--New Names. The book concludes with appendices on Fighter Command orders of battle and Principal Wing Leaders. The book's only drawback is that it includes only the European theater of operations, and does not include the Mediterranean or African theaters of operations. However as a reference work this book is unmatched and "required reading" for serious World War II aviation researchers.
