Format: Hardcover
We Wage War by Night is a heavyweight tome written by the official historian of 622 Squadron, Howard J. Sandall. The front cover declares it is 'An operational and Photographic History of No 622 Squadron Bomber Command'. The book fulfills that description and much, much more. It is not only a history but also a detailed narrative of the personal stories of the squadron members who took the war to Germany between 1943 and 1945.

Firstly, the statistics of this reference work - 304 pages. 31 chapters. 11 appendices (I A brief history of RAF Mildenhall, II 622 Squadron History, III Commanding Officers, IV a cutaway drawing of an Avro Lancaster, V Lancasters lost with 622 Squadron, VI List of Honours and Awards for No 622 Squadron, VII The Short Stirling, VIII A cutaway drawing of the Short Stirling, XI The Avro Lancaster, X 622 Squadron Prisoners of War and XI 622 Squadron Roll of Honour. There are 2 pages of Glossary and Abbreviations, a Bibliography and 6 pages of index. 100s of black and white and colour photographs and charts, records etc are printed on high quality gloss paper. I commend the book to the serious student of World War 2 and to the general reader.

This is a magisterial reference work and a labour of love on the part of Mr Sandall. He is the nephew of FL. Lt John Gray DFC (Retd), a member of 622 Squadron. I declare an interest, the forward was written by my father, FL. Lt Tom Maxwell DFC (retd) also of 622 Squadron. He and John Gray flew together. Tom Maxwell rightly describes the book as a lasting memorial to those of 622 Squadron who lost their lives in WW2 - 215 from the RAF, 37 from the Royal Australian Air Force, 32 from the Royal Canadian Air Force, 20 from the Royal New Zealand Air Force and 1 from the Royal Norwegian Air Force.

This is a fine book with lots of stories of 622 operations, including the fates of individual aircrew and aircraft.
It is nicely laid out and includes some interesting photographs to keep one's attention going.
One minor omission I feel is the lack of a listing of all 622 operations while active, but this is hardly noticed as you get engrossed in the heroic story of a Bomber Squadron at war.....
