2.0 out of 5 stars 'Authorised account', 8 Aug 2013
I had high hopes for this product, being interested in the subject deeply for many years, but was sorely disappointed. The authors include the official squadron historian, a respected Bomber Command historian and others, but the content of the book is rather sparse, picking odd figures out of the 133 men involved to concentrate on. Aside from recent ones, the photographic content has in the main all been seen before and aside from a few odd facts here and there were no great passages of new information. Overall rather disappointing and if you have half a dozen other books you'll have most of what's here already.
