Product Description


This is a completely revised, expanded and updated edition of Dr Price's classic work which was originally published by Ian Allan Publishing in 1973. Since it originally appeared over 30 years ago, Dr Price has gathered a significant amount of new research and data to expand and update the text and include revised information, more personal accounts, enhanced diagrams and illustrations. his work, published in two volumes, tells the story of the strategic Allied air offensive against Germany. With the aid of an analytical narrative text, diagrams and colour artwork, the campaign is analysed from the viewpoints of the RAF, the USAAF and the Luftwaffe, with in-depth assessment of daylight and nocturnal operations, aircraft, weapons, radar and ground defence. There are also many accounts from the fighter aces and bombers crews who took part. When it was first published, this work was regarded as a definitive account of the bomber offensive against the Third Reich. Copies of early editions are now much sought after by historians and collectors.

This revised and enlarged edition will make the work available to a new generation who will not fail to be impressed by the depth and detail of Dr Price's research.

I received this book just a couple of weeks ago and I can highly recommend it to anyone that has an interest in the air battles over Germany during WWII. It is broken down into parts, conserning many of the famous raids (1000 ship)and that of the Dambusters. It contains recitations from the combatants involved in the conflict.And numerous photos that I have not seen before.

Excellent book by Ian Allan Publishing. The moment i saw the logo when i opened the book i thought about the Luftwaffe Colours series, if this book had some information from the apparently unavailable Nachtjager volumes. I can't confirm this, since i don't have these titles, but the first volume has a plethora of information on the strategic bombing campaign from 1939 to 1943, from the first RAF attacks during daylight, to the night bombing campaign, and the entry of the USAAF into operations.
The book is well organized, it covers with detail some of the most important actions, with diagrams, maps, and overall feels like a Luftwaffe Colours title, but with much more depth. There are accounts from the British, American, German sides, overall well balanced, together with colour profiles of some of the airplanes used in some of the operations, or shown in photos. It covers also in detail the electronic warfare, the use of radar, the development of the Himmelbet radar network, IFF, electronic counter-measures, and eletronic intelligence, the Wilde Sau and Zahme Sau tactics.
The first volume gives some predominance to the night bombing offensive, which is understandable.
Anyone interested in this should also check the volume 2, which covers the daylight offensive in more detail. There are some interesting accounts that i've read earlier in "Clash of Eagles", by Martin W.Bowman, and this title is a perfect companion for these two volumes.
In short, well worth the money, and if you're interested in the topic, either from the historian or the modeller's point of view, you won't be disappointed. Highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars some 35 year old texts are not worth reprinting 25 Oct. 2005
By N. Page - Published on
..I thought this title would be worth investigating. Frankly it is not - the treatment is disappointing to say the least - this is over-priced (!!) slim 'coffee table' tome. There is little evidence of new research & data. The 'enhanced illustrations' are mostly Tullis profiles lifted directly from the Jagdwaffe series..large photos reproduced over an entire A-4 side are blurred & indistinct...if you know nothing at all about the subject it might be worth looking at..otherwise avoid.
