5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant moving tribute to the men who gave us freedom, 6 Mar. 2008
This review is from: Bases of Bomber Command Then and Now (Hardcover)
Renowned aviation expert Roger A. Freeman has compiled this well-detailed digest of all the airfields of RAF Bomber Command. In the often imitated but never beaten style of the After the Battle series, the book contrasts wartime images of the airfields with today's comparisons, giving life and context to the writing. Nature, in many cases, has sown weeds on the concrete where once lumbering four-engined Lancasters took off to fight.

All the Bomber Command airfields are covered, with useful aerial photographs and histories.

After the controversial bombing of German cities and centres of production, the British government rapidly washed their hands of this service (which had been following the government's own orders) and the airmen's sacrifices were quietly and deliberately forgotten. This book is a moving and factual memorial to the 55,000 men of RAF Bomber Command who lost their lives as part of the Allied war effort that gave us freedom.

They bombed cities with mainly German women and children and the old aged. Very heroic. Often to aid Uncle Joe the psychopathic mass murderer. Read The Bad War by M S King. You have been misled since primary school.

Well done - spoken like a true neo-Nazi. If you don't like being bombed, don't go around invading Europe, bombing villages, towns and cities to spread your selfish, evil creed. No sympathy whatsoever. Enjoy this speech: "The Nazis entered this war under the rather childish delusion that they were going to bomb everybody else, and nobody was going to bomb them. At Rotterdam, London, Warsaw, and half a hundred other places, they put that rather naive theory into operation. They sowed the wind, and now, they are going to reap the whirlwind."
