Bounty Books, new ed., 2007. 288 pp., photo-plates + maps & plans. D.j., 24 x 15cm. FINE. This book is largely an eye-witness account of the vital and often ignored heavy bomber contribution to the success of the D-Day landings and therefore the winning of the war in Europe. It is told using considerable first-hand experience from the veterans of the campaign, together with background information from primary source documents on the tactics and strategy employed before, during and after the invasion. In this lively look at D-Day in the air, eight different bomber crews - three American and five British - tell their unforgettable stories from inside B-17s, B-24s, Lancasters, and Halifaxes. Certain raids have been selected and described in detail and there are numerous previously unpublished photographs.
