5.0 out of 5 stars Tail End Charlies. Last Battles of The Bomber War 1944-45, 6 Dec. 2007
This book is asuperb read for all aviation buffs.It is real life stories by people who were quite simply doing their duty as instructed, under horrendous risks of death,by the Government of the time.As the bombers were the then only source of revenge that this country had to return the horrific realities of war back at Hitler. It is criminal and insulting that these brave men were ignored by the very Government, country and peoplethat they were fighting and having todie for in the name of freedom.Their efforts should be acknowledgedin full and by those whose heads should be bowed in deep shame.This book is a superb read.A memorial should be set up for the 55,000+ who gave their lives as a lasting tribute to their ultimate sacrifice. These men have been ignored too long.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bomber Command, 6 Dec. 2007
This book is a very good read.It gives very detailed accounts of how the bombing offensive of the RAF was created.It also exonerates Harris from the blame he and his crews were shouldered with during and after the war.The bravery of the crews in the RAF is brilliantly shown amongst these pages.Even though the stupidity of the Politicians of the day and some of the RAF's Command structure is highlighted as being narrow minded and short sighted. Their stupidity being paid for with the lives of the crews who were simply following the directives passed down by the Government of the time.These pages are filled with pride and bravery,and those who deserted what Bomber Command crews did from day one to the last should bow their heads in shame.Read this book yourself and come to your own judgement. The truth is Max Hastings at least has done those brave men of Bomber Command some justice at least by exposing the TRUE version of what happened.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fighter Boys. Saving Britain., 5 Dec. 2007
When Britain stood alone in the hectic and volatile Summer of 1940. All that stood between winning and losing our freedom was a handful of brave fighter pilots. These guys came from all walks of life.They never faultered in their belief and determination and bravery that Britain would remain free and fight on against overwhelming odds. Their stories are told with such classical style on every page of this book. It beggers belief that a number of these pilots were only 18 years of age yet they never faultered.A lot of them paid the ultimate sacrifice in the prime of their innocent youth. Read this book with pride and simply admire what these brave men sacrificed for our freedom today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stringbag:Swordfish at war, 4 Dec. 2007
You have got to read this book to believe how brave the crews were to go into combat in such an old designed aircraft. It beggers belief that such courageous men could be found,but they were. The stories told are a testerment to the bravery of those who flew the Stringbag on active service.The stories themselves tell the story of the men in the stories. It is a well worthwhile read on many acts of bravery and skill and determination.Try it and you will appreciate what I mean.
