An insight into the nightfighter and the life of the RAF,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pursuit Through Darkened Skies: An Ace Night-fighter Crew in World War II (Hardcover)
I've always had an interest in the night fighter war and this seemed an ideal book. In many ways it it. It gives a good idea of the organised chaos that Britain faced at the time and some of the futile efforts to try and at first deter intruders over the UK and then in taking the war to the German forces that were making being a bomber crew member almost a suicide mission (over time)
The book and its descriptions are great. I took some (personal) objections to the odd outburst by the author which may reflect the difference in our ages but I suspect the difference in our politics. The outburst included against the post war Labour Govt was out of place as were some of the other comments made here and their. It did (for me) detract a little from the historical story - mainly well told
That aside - I would recommend a read.
