3.0 out of 5 stars Very amusing but....., 20 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Night Fighter over Germany: Flying Beaufighters and Mosquitoes in World War 2 (Kindle Edition)
This is a very amusing book, written in a light hearted style, but whilst it tells us a lot about what the author did on the ground during his years of service in the RAF, there is little written about his experiences as a "Night Fighter Over Germany" at all. He briefly mentions at one point " getting into a dogfight", but that's all the detail we are given about that incident. Its an interesting window into the lives of ordinary Aircrew who served in the RAF during and after the war. Not many of them were aces like Bader or Johnson, in fact whilst the author did 35 trips over the Reich, he doesn't seem to have shot anything down, but that's not unusual, because as he says. "its a damned big sky".

Still glad I bought the book on Kindle, but if you want to know bout the nitty gritty of night fighting, look for Alfred Price's Instruments of Darkness a fascinating story of the development of airborne electronic warfare.
