The Nuremberg Raid: 30-31 March 1944 (Penguin History)
The Nuremberg Raid: 30-31 March 1944 (Penguin History)
by Martin Middlebrook
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars sent to be slaughtered, 29 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unbelievable and at times sickening reading...with 96 aircraft and most crew lost on a raid that achieved very little damage.....the known weather forecast was enough and cancel the raid ......................
One German night fighter actually destroyed 4 Halifax and 4 Lancaster aircraft within a thirty minute period using their upward slanting cannon.......................
Book is excellent reading .....................have since bought "The Peenemunde Raid" and "The Berlin Raids" by the same author....................
Enjoy

4.0 out of 5 stars TOTALLY UNDERESTIMATED, 24 Jun 2011
Now living in East Anglia and with a strong interest in local wartime airfields, I had seen the occasional brief mention about Tempsford and in my mind I had pictured "a smallish, possibly grass airfield making the occasional Lysander trip with a secret agent"....How very wrong I was...
I found this book to be a total revelation about the importance and value of this secret airfield ....not only Lysanders, but...'40 Halifaxes delivered from Radlett' Stirlings ,Whitleys, wellingtons, Hudsons ...etc ..etc,
With more than enough to arouse my interest and 'Er indoors' wanting to visit the local RSPB, we made the pilgrimage earlier this week and eventually managed to find what little remains.
Part of one of the runways in decent condition is "coned off", but the highlight was being able to enter "The Barn" standing as a memorial to those who never returned...
Book was strong enough to persuade 'a very old git' to make the journey and try to imagine what it was like around 65 years ago...
I clearly enjoyed the book..

5.0 out of 5 stars ALREADY A SATISFIED USER, 14 Aug 2010
Already using this myself,
Bought for the 2 young Grandchildren who were complaining about slow PC's and constant "error" messages..........
Installed on both machines, seems to have worked well,leaving them delighted with the improvements and much smoother running machines....
Very small price to pay to see the smiles on their faces
Looks like...... 'it does what it says on the box'

5.0 out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING, 22 Feb 2010
Having read many books giving the history of individual aircraft types, this one certainly stands out, well written, very'easy and enjoyable reading' with so much interesting information.....never imagined that there was so much to learn about the Venom...................The RAF appeared to consider that aircraft were becoming 'past their sell by date' after only 700 hrs flying................The early 'wing failures'.............The many lives lost before aircraft were fitted with lightweight ejection seats............New aircraft were with squadrons for as little as 17 months before they were consigned to the scrapheap.............Some new aircraft only made their delivery flight to maintenance units where they languished until they were used as 'maintenance airframes' or scrapped........
Quite an amazing history, must be one of the better books covering 'aircraft types'..............Well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars LIGHTNING HISTORY. NICE ONE TIM !, 7 Aug 2009
First saw the book at Duxford visitor centre where initial inspection was enough for me to order the book from the above mentioned Amazon special offer at a more realistic price.

Delighted with book and the many previously unseen photos (several in colour) plus a few almost forgotten favourites of an aircraft that was becoming "fuel critical" as soon as the engines were started.

Book is 'bright and interesting' with a history of each individual aircraft, so many were lost,some with less than 100 flying hours,although just a few did achieve more than 4000 hours

An enjoyable book.

One of those few books that you just don't want to put down.

Always fascinated with 'anything Vulcan' and this book certainly holds your interest..... excellent reading

Highly recommended.....only regret that I was too late for an autographed copy

Eagerly awaiting latest book from Tony Blackman "Test Pilot my extraordinary life"

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME, 1 Aug 2008
Not very often that you get your hands on a book and then find yourself totally engrossed....page after page of enjoyable reading from a (then aged) 21 year old Lancaster pilot...The lives,losses,loves and very 'near misses'
For me,simply one of the best "Aviation Books"
