This is the first volume of Martin Bowman's series detailing the story of Bomber Command during the 39-45 war. He draws on personal experiences of those who were there, both in the air and on the ground and tells the story in an informative and matter of fact style. Individual raids and acts of bravery and heroism are recounted in detail and the scale of the Command's losses and the personal stories certainly made this reader pause for thought and be thankful for the sacrifices and contibutions of the thousands of men and women who took part in this war-long battle for the skies. I've already bought Vol 2 and look forward to the other books in the series.

Part of a series and those published so far are brilliantly written and the photographs are amazing. My Nephew was so pleased with it he often re reads.

A well-researched work, well written and well presented.
The book includes many stories of the loss of an aircraft and details of the crew that died. Unfortunately these were not balanced by experiences of aircrew in "successful" operations, from which the aircraft returned safely, nor by experiences of members of Bomber Command apart from actual operations. The overall memory from this book is of a catalogue of death and suffering.

An excellent book that details the early raids from all view points.
A must read for any one interested in the history of bomber command.
