Product Overview

This book tells the story of the RAF men involved, from the early attacks by single Beauforts off the Dutch and Norwegian coasts to the massed assaults of later years by the famous ?strike-wings?. The author, who joined the RAF in 1940 as a wireless operator/ air gunner, and served in the UK, Middle East and West Africa, and whose career on torpedo work ended in a crash in which his pilot and navigator were killed, is eminently qualified to write this book. He includes many historic actions; the lone moonlight attack by a 22-year-old flight sergeant on the pocket-battleship L?tzow; the torpedoing of the Gneisena in Brest harbour; the Channel Dash of the Scharnhorst, Gneisena and Prinz Eugen and the heroic Swordfish attacks; and the vital strikes from Malta in 1942 against the Italian fleet and the supply shipping of the AfrikaKorps.
