The author of this book tells the story of his night fighting activity as a Navigator in the RAF Fighter Command and later No. 100 Group RAF Bomber Command. His tale extends to the social history of the time and his story of a train journey from an airfield in the North of England to London for a wedding accompanied by many of the officers of his Squadron brings tears of laughter to the eyes. The first tale in the book is a story about how his first week in the RAF was spent in the uniform of a Gestapo officer ...
Since reading the book I have been fortunate enough to meet the man, in real life his tales are just as captivating and his after dinner speaking is fantastic.

A very decent read for a book written on a relatively less glamorous, less adopted topic. As some others said before me, it contains a lot of technical information about that time's on-board radars and night-time target acquisition techniques, which I found it quite interesting and informative. The reason why I give it 4/5 stars is that it lacks a bit of action, but that is not necessarily an author's fault but rather the general lack of action during night time while the author was operational. Recommended!
