Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Red Line: The Gripping Story of the RAF's Bloodiest Raid on Hitler's Germany (Paperback)
I have read quite a few accounts of air warfare and bombers (both allied and German) and this one has a very interesting and engaging way about it. For example it gives great context to what the rest of the day of a mission was like. It looks at what they ate and what the girls they spoke to before take off said. It paints a very vivid picture of the younger brothers and sisters back at home anxiously thinking about their elder brothers.
All in all it's a great book. Even if it was just the mission details and some of the actual testimony of the raids it would be very good. But what sets it apart is the common everyday bits which give great context and tell us as much about the war as the bits about dropping bombs etc
