As the Battle of Britain was coming to a close, the Luftwaffe found merit in arming its single-engined fighters with bombs, using them in preference to twin-engined bombers against many daylight targets. In 1941, these attacks tailed off but in the Spring of 1942, recommenced, initially against shipping and coastal targets. Two units were designated for these jagdbomber (literally fighter-bomber) attacks-10/JG 2 and 10/JG 26 and the targets were extended to include railways, gas holders and selected military and civilian installations. The detrimental affect on British morale caused by what was known as 'Tip and Run' attacks was great. The Luftwaffe's Fighter-Bombers analyses the campaign from September 1942 - June 1943 highlighting, among others, unopposed attacks on London, Yeovil, Salisbury, the Isle of Wight, Great Yarmouth, Torquay and Bournemouth. Both the raid on Dieppe and the sinking of HMS Berkeley by 10/JG 2 are examined using contemporary records and first hand accounts from both the German and British sides. Tactics are considered from both attacker and defender viewpoints, their successes and failures and corresponding impact. Using previously unpublished photographs, the majority of which are German (some even showing the air attacks as seen from the cockpits of German aircraft), the book tackles a previously unpublished aspect of the World War II air war.
