Product description

First published in 1993, this accomplished history of Royal
Air Force Bomber Command 4 Group has been unavailable for many years. The group
will be forever associated with Yorkshire, where it was based for 11 years from
1937 to 1948. The core of the book focuses on the tremendous efforts made by
the squadrons allocated to 4 Group during World War II. Backed by hard-working
and loyal ground crew, night after night, many hundreds of brave young men flew
off into the unknown in Whitleys, Wellingtons and Halifaxes to bring
retribution to the Third Reich. Aircraft from 4 Group were the first to fly
over Berlin, much to the embarrassment of Goering. They were also the first to
bomb Italy. The casualty rate was horrific, especially in the early years of
the war when a bomber crew rarely completed a full tour of 30 operations.
Interest in the men, machines and operation of RAF Bomber Command has always
been considerable.
