Dr. Robert Forczyk presents an outstanding reference work of research and analysis. […]This is a very welcomed title and I am highly enthusiastic about it. Easily recommended! --Aeroscale
As usual in this series, the text is perfectly integrated by profiles, drawings, three views and cockpits, truly works of art by the illustrators Gareth Hector and Jim Laurier. In a nutshell, a very rich and interesting title. --Marco De Montis
Featuring specially commissioned full-colour artwork, this is the gripping story of the struggle between the British Commonwealth's mighty four-engined Avro Lancaster heavy bomber and Nazi Germany's Bf 110 nightfighter, equipped with airborne radar and innovative weaponry, in the night skies over Germany in 1942-45.See all Product Description

Raises the question as to why the RAF kept up night raids after D-DAY. The US had won air superiority for day raids, so cover of darkness was more of an advantage to the 110 than the Lancaster.
I enjoyed this book, as it dared to criticize the Lancaster, and also gave reasons for doing so .
Whilst this is a typical Osprey Book (well written and researched) it is woefully lacking in images,both photos and illustrations.
Normally i would rave about Osprey books,i own about three dozen of them !,but this one falls into the "could do better" category,especially with all the large scale kits that are out there.
Unfortunately the book is marred by the use of incorrect German:
On pages 6, 29, 39 and 72, gruppen [sic] should read Gruppen.
On page 26, it might be worth mentioning that Schräge Musik transliterates as 'slanting music', but was actually the German word for jazz.
On page 33 jagddivision [sic] should read Jagddivision.
On page 42, Zahme Sau actually means tame sow - the German word for a boar is der Eber or der Keiler; a wild boar becoming der Wildschwein (wild pig). Thus the author's wild boar (Wilde Sau) should actually translate as wild sow - i.e. female.
On pages 47, 48, 50, 52, 54, 59, 60 and 69 he lapses from correctly spelling all German nouns with a capital letter - Flugzeugführer, not flugzeugführer [sic]; Bordfunker, not bordfunker [sic]. If Robert can get the Umlauts right, why not the capital letters?
On pages 37, 55 and 64 flak [sic] should more correctly be spelled FlaK.
On pages 48, 50, 58, 60, 72 and 77, staffel or staffeln [sic] should read Staffel or Staffeln.Read more ›
