About This Book

While the heroic exploits of ‘The Few’ of Fighter Command are rightly lauded, those of ‘The Many’ of Bomber Command remain overlooked. Night after night, the bomber crews ranged across Europe seeking out and attacking targets in an all-out effort to undermine the German war effort against Britain and prevent invasion. This book tells the stories of the young men who undertook perilous sorties on a daily basis, fighting hard against both the enemy and the elements. Faced with flak and fighters, exposed to the often harsh weather conditions and operating at the edge of their capabilities, for the young men of Bomber Command, this was ‘The Other Battle of Britain’.
