I bought this book as I was researching the service history of my great uncle who was killed on operations in 1944. The size of the book was the first thing that alerted me to the scale of the sacrifice made by Bomber Command crews. 576 pages long, this is a reference book rather than a narrative, but the short details given against the loss of each and every aircraft soon brings home the awesome losses. Inevitably, more details are available for those aircraft from which crew members survived; most poignant are the entries stating simply 'Lost without trace'. Their families will never know what happened. The book does not pretend to be anything other than a list of every Bomber Command aircraft lost in 1944 so it is aimed at a specific market. It serves that market very well. Read it and remember 'The Many'.

I bought this as a record of the loss of my uncle. It isn't bedtime reading but then if you are buying this book it isn't for relaxation.
A very good price for a sometimes difficult to find book.

The level of detail and research for this book is out of this world.

IT's such a pity, so many young men at the prime of their lives dying literally by the thousands in dark an cold nights over Europe.

Chorley did a scholar job here. It's not a paga-by-page read, of course, but a reference book.
