Product description

Review

Well illustrated with rarely seen photographs, this is a great read for anyone interested in Bomber Command. --Flypast

Must for anyone interested in Bomber Command. --Britain at War magazine

This is a magnificent book which crams a vast amount of information into its relatively small number of pages. --Cross & Cockade International

As a 'companion' the book lives up to its title and, as such, it draws many things together, rather than attempting to expose startling new facts. That said, I do recommend The Pathfinder Companion and it will certainly find a place on my bookshelf. --Wg Cdr Colin Cummings - Royal Air Force Historical Society Journal

This superb researched and produced book comes from the well-respected aviation historian Sean Feast. It is superbly illustrated. --RAF News

Format: Hardcover
A smattering of good books have appeared since WWII about the RAF's elite Path Finder Force (PFF), from Gordon Musgrove's fine ( but rather 'dry' ) Group History to memoirs from former PFF men such as Hamish Mahaddie and John Searby.
But recently, and with the sad but inevitable passing from the scene of the veterans, it's seemed that the PFF story is almost in danger of being forgotten.
Sean Feast's previous books focused on stories connected with one PFF station - Little Staughton - and now he's broadened his theme to deliver an excellent, and very approachable, general history of PFF itself.'The Pathfinder Companion' doesn't contain reams of data and statistics ( those are available elsewhere ). It almost seems modelled on Theo Boiten's Nightfighter books (and is all the stronger for it) by being constructed around first-hand veteran accounts, many of which appear throughout the text in separate panels accompanied by relevant photos. Mr Feast has done a great job of tracking down many veterans before it's too late, recording their experiences and including many of their personal photos which haven't been seen before. Fittingly, for those who want to delve deeper into the subject, a very good bibliography is included.
Published to coincide with the launching of 'Friends Of The Pathfinders', this excellent little book deserves its place on any Bomber Command bookshelf, and will hopefully play its part in reversing the trend for the memory of PPFF to 'fade away'.

This is in my opinion one of the best books on the PFF I have read. As usual Sean has got it right on the button, it gives a fascinating insight into the PFF and the brave young men who served within its ranks. Sean is fast becoming the authority on the PFF. A most welcome addition to my ever growing collection of Bomber Command books.

Agree totally with Martin's review above.
Very easy to read straight off; or to dip into due to its outline as Martin describes.
Great selection of new photos.
