Night and Day Bomber Offensive PDF

Philip Kaplan

For much of World War II England provided the only western European base from which the British and American air forces could take the war into Nazi-occupied Europe and Germany itself. The American Eighth and Ninth Air Forces struck enemy targets by day at great distances, often on raids of eight or nine hours duration, while the RAF flew most of its demanding missions at night.This highly illustrated book will convey what it was like for pilots, aircrew and ground crew during their wartime service. It not only takes the reader on typical USAAF and RAF raids, but it also depicts the work of the mechanics and fitters as they struggled to keep battered aircraft airworthy, how the medics coped with the countless wounded who returned from the raids and looks at where the airmen relaxed within the various bases or in the local villages and towns. It will include period and later images of the bases, the aircraft, memorials and relevant locations in Britain, France and Germany. It will be a vivid and powerful human expression of the bomber airmens wartime experience.

But RAF Bomber Command, despite its major contribution to the Allied victory and the death of over 55,000 aircrew, remains mired in controversy to the present day.

HyperWar: Conquering the Night--Army Air Forces … The next day a reconnaissance aircraft would fly to the plotted position, if one were available, and attempt to photograph the downed enemy plane. But Tierney, Smith, and the rest of the night fighter crews were in a war that could not be stopped to tally victory credits.

It reads: “Attack—by Day and by Night. The bombers of the RAF—Stirlings, Halifaxes and Lancasters—carry out heavy night operations. Now using bombers of American air force by day.” In the summer of 1943, the daytime American and nighttime British bombing campaigns became aligned as the “Combined Bomber Offensive.” This plan

Minelaying operations continued too. This had always been an important but unsung part of Bomber Command’s work, and in the run-up to D-Day 2,198 sorties were flown to sow mines in enemy waters either side of the invasion corridor, and at the mouths of harbours sheltering German motor-torpedo boats (E-boats) and submarines.
