Special Op: Bomber by Steve Darlow

Book Description

From 1943 to 1945, the Allied bombing offensive escalated to unprecedented levels. "Special Op: Bomber" is an action-packed account of this battle in the skies over Europe, from the perspective of the men who undertook the highly dangerous job of flying the bombers.Throughout the unrelenting and destructive air campaign there were certain vital operations that required the airmen of the RAF and the USAAF to take their skills to new levels, and to display courage above and beyond the call of duty. "Special Op: Bomber" draws upon a wealth of these courageous veterans' stories, many of them previously unpublished.The vivid firsthand accounts convey the peril of Allied air combat in World War II with breathtaking immediacy.
