5.0 out of 5 stars RAF Bomber Command operations in World War 2., 24 Jun. 2000
This review is from: The Whitley Boys: 4 Group Bomber Operations 1939 to 1940 (Paperback)
'The Whitley Boys', is the story of no.4 Group, RAF Bomber Command operations in the first year of World War 11. The group squadrons were equipped with Armstrong Whitworth Whitley twin-engine bombers. Night after night this small force ranged far and wide over Germany and occupied Europe, flying in all weather conditions to carry out attacks against heavily defended targets, achieving the following notable 'Firsts'.
3rd-4th September 1939. First RAF aircraft to fly over German mainland.
1st-2nd October 1939. First RAF aircraft to fly over Berlin.
12th-13th January 1940. First RAF aircraft to fly over ocupied Czechoslovakia and Austria.
7th-8th March 1940. First RAF aircraft to fly over occupied Poland.
19th-20th March 1940. First RAF bombing attack against a German land target.
11th-12th June 1940. First RAF bombing attack against an Italian target.
25th-26th August 1940. Took part in the first bombing attack against Berlin.
These raids had a profound stimulating effect on the morale of the apprehensive population of Great Britain and it was the lessons learnt by the crews involved during the first year of the war, which resulted in Bomber Command becoming such a mighty force later on.
