From the DJ: "Between March and July 1943, a campaign was launched against the Ruhr, yet Bomber Command was not permitted to neglects its other responsibilities of minelaying and disrupting the U-boat fleet which was causing havoc on the Atlantic convoy routes. In the space of less than five months 1,045 bombers and 6,848 men were lost. They had flown into the Valley of the Shadow of Death, and had not returned. J. Alwyn Phillips was a Halifax pilot during this period and in his retirement began a project to record the fates of his fellow crews. As well as compiling an exhaustive listing of crews, their aircraft and their fates, he has detailed all of Bomber Command's operations for his phase of the campaign including minor operations and minelaying sorties. . . . Drawing on official sources the author has brought together many loose ends to produce the definitive account of the campaign.". N° de réf. du libraire 33861
