What one as come to expect from Martin, covers periods of Bomber Command history that does not always get the coverage it should rightly have. Excellent book!

I am sure a very large number of people are most grateful to Martin Bowman for documenting so many of the personal events of Bomber Command operations which are so important to survivors and their descendants. In this particular book, he makes two references to my late father, Jacob (Jack) Goldstein, who was killed in action on a mission over Nurnberg on 16 March 1945 (Lancaster RF154 AS-B flying from Kirmington). Both references take material and direct text from my jointly authored book "Three Lives in Education: Reflections of an Anglo-Jewish Family" (Susy Stone, Jean Lawrence and Michael Goldstein; Clio Publishing; revised first edition 2011; ISBN 978-0-9556983-5-4), and readers may wish to read the original to gain greater insight and details (this information is not given by Martin Bowman). Perhaps I might also point out, for the record, that one of the quotations is materially incorrect; it describes the receipt of the telegram on 17 March 1945 giving notification of my father's death (actually, the fact that he was missing) as being received by Fegele (known as 'Fanny'), who was actually Jack's mother (my paternal grand-mother), whereas the telegram was sent to Jack's wife, my mother, Sarah (known as Sadie). The photograph shows my mother and father in July 1944.
But this error should not detract from the more general service which this series of WW2 books by Martin Bowman provides.

According to my dad all these books (he has 4 out of 5) are just as good as each other. Still trying to get vol 3 there seems to be a problem with this one

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Look at RAF Strategic Bombing Campaign, September 1944-May 1945 28 April 2014
By Jason Wisniewski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
"Bomber Command: Reflections of War, Vol. 5, Armageddon (27 September 1944 - May 1945)" by Martin W. Bowman is a very detailed account of the Royal Air Force's strategic bombing campaign during the last phase of World War II. The book's strengths are its numerous first-hand accounts, mostly of British and Allied bomber crews, as they struggled to carry out missions despite enemy fighters and flak, not to mention the natural elements. The book's chapters are: (1) Beating the Life Out of Germany, (2) Down in the Drink, (3) Out for Blood, (4) Flying Into the Flames of Hell, and (5) This is Your Victory. It closes with seven appendices. Overall this book is a very good buy on the strategic bombing campaign at the close of World War II.
