5.0 out of 5 stars A sobering story, 11 Oct. 2009
This review is from: Bomber Boys: Fighting Back 1940-1945 (Paperback)
I picked this book up in the local Oxfam shop and didn't read it for about a year. How silly - it was difficult to put down.
Whilst some may find the detail a little tedious please go with it as it is really essential to the story. I was born only three years after the war ended and I thought I knew quite a lot about the RAF during WW2. Reading this changed my mind completely.I knew little and understood less.
The sheer magnitude of the Bomber Command losses is bought home.
Losses to the German population were far worse. We all know about Hamburgh and Dresden but city after city suffered and I'm sure those lost on the ground can only be estimates.
This brings home the true horror of the war, to one not alive at the time.
To any Bomber Boys still with us , Thank You.
I'm now going to read Fighter Boys.
Well done Patrick Bishop.
