The Allied bombing offensive reached an unprecedented scale as the 1939-1945 war progressed. Special Op: Bomber is an action-packed account of this battle in the skies over Europe during World War II. Throughout the unrelenting and destructive air campaign there were certain vital operations that required the airmen of the Royal Air Force and the United States Army Air Force to take their skills to new levels, and to display courage above and beyond the call of duty. This book draws upon a wealth of these courageous veterans stories, many of them previously unpublished. These vivid firsthand accounts convey the peril of Allied air combat in World War II with breathtaking immediacy.
