THIS IS BASICALLY A "MUST HAVE" BOOK FOR ANYONE WITH AN INTEREST IN BOMBER COMMAND'S CAMPAIGN AGAINST GERMANY 1939 TO 45. IT IS NOW THE ONLY WIDELY AVAILABLE STORY OF BOMBER COMMANDS ELECTRONIC WARRIORS FROM 100 GROUP, NOW THAT MARTIN STREETLY'S "CONFOUND AND DESTROY" IS SO HARD TO GET HOLD OF. IT TELLS OF ALL THE GROUP,S ACTIVITY'S FROM THE FIRST HEROIC FLIGHT OF F/O PAULTON AND HIS CREW FLYING A LONE WELLINGTON BOMBER ON A MISSION WHERE THEIR SOLE INTENTION WAS TO BE ATTACKED BY A GERMAN NIGHTFIGHTER IN ORDER THAT THE SPECIAL RADIO OPERATOR COULD FIND AND RECORD THE FREQUENCIES USED BY THE GERMAN "LICHTENSTEIN" A.I., TO THE FIRST OPERATIONAL USE OF NAPALM BY THE RAF DURING 141 SQN IN THE DYING DAYS OF THE WAR. THIS GROUPS ACTIVITIES WERE LITTLE PUBLISIZED AT THE TIME, AND SINCE, DUE TO THE SENSITIVE NATURE OF THE WORK AND THE CREWS BOTH AIR AND GROUND WERE AS VALIANT AS ANY OTHER PART OF THE RAF. A RIVETING READ FROM START TO FINISH AND I COMMEND THE AUTHORS FOR THE WAY IN WHICH THEY HAVE WOVEN TOGETHER THE NARRATIVE OF 100 GROUP'S VERY INTERESTING WORK AND THE EFFECT IT HAD ON THE GERMAN NIGHTFIGHTERS AND GROUND DEFENCES.
