1st ed., 1978. 279 pp., photo-ills., + ills. D.j., 25 x 18cm. FINE. One of the least publicized formations within the RAF, 100 Group waged an extraordinary war of electronic stroke and counter stroke in an effort to lessen Bomber Command’s staggering losses during the strategic air offensive against Germany in the middle of World War II. This book describes the Group’s activities during the time between its formation in November 1943 and the end of the European war in May 1945 and places them within the overall strategic concepts of the day. To provide further insights into this complex subject, the background events leading to the Group’s creation are fully covered. Appendices include the technical aspects of the campaign, including the jamming and homing devices, the airborne and ground radar sets, radio and navigational aids, aircraft specifications and brief histories of the squadrons involved. Also included is material on the Luftwaffe’s night fighter arm and on bomber support operations outside the European theatre.
