Fascinating and eye opening accounts from both sides, of the Berlin Raids. There was much that I did not know, in spite of having read many books on Bomber Command's war. The sacrifice and losses of crews was horrendous, and this I was aware of, but I had little idea how much of the effort was wasted as a result of the difficulties of blind bombing through thick cloud and in bad weather. The suffering of the population in the city and their stoicism and resilience was also brought home to me, as was the effectiveness of the night fighters during this period of the bombing war.
The sacrifices of so many aircrew in the struggle to strike back at Germany and help ease the pressure on the Russians, should never be forgotten, but neither should the suffering of those in all countries subjected to the new terror of bombing from the air. Recommended reading for any student of the war in the air.

Once again Martin Middlebrook has produced a masterpiece of historical accuracy and looks from both sides of the fierce campaign to bomb Berlin. All 16 raids are highly detailed in this book. One of the best books about bomber command I have ever read.

A very good read. It shows how good bomber command was. They never got the praise the should have got.

Wonderful book, as my father participated in these raids. He was a pilot of a Lancaster bomber.
