My interest in this book stems from the fact that my Grandfather served in a P-61 squadron during WWII. His outfit-the 422nd Night Fighter Squadron. He was the squadron photographer, and his image is in several photographs. Several of the pictures are attributed to him.
This book is heavy on pictures and drawings but is light on the whole story of the night fighter squadrons. The actions of ground crews aren't recorded. How the squadrons moved their aircraft from the States to the Theaters of Operations remain unknown. The maintenance of the aircraft is a dark area, as well as the staff sections, and all-important radar operators. During the epic Battle of the Bulge, the 422nd and 425th's actions are only described in terms of air-to-air fighting. What about close air support?
A good picture book and overall account but tragically lacking the full story of the Night Fighter Squadrons.
