Opis produktu:

The Banff Coastal Command Strike Wing versus the Kriegsmarine and Luftwaffe 1944-1945.

Every day for nine months from September 1944, young British Commonwealth and Norwegian airmen flew from Banff, Fraserburgh and Peterhead in northern Scotland to target German U-Boats, merchantmen and freighters in the fjords and leads of southwest Norway, encountering the Luftwaffe and flakships every step of the way.

Truly this was a war within a war, bitter and bloody, at low level and close quarters. By recording their crucial contribution to winning the world war, in a compelling, accurate and fascinating way, Andrew Bird has ensured their memory will not be overlooked.

A fully updated edition with new photographic material.

'An impressive study of a largely forgotten air campaign. Thoroughly researched and full of first-hand accounts... paints a vivid picture of a bitter and costly campaign.'    Eastern Daily Press
