The Battle of Hamburg
by Martin Middlebrook
Over the course of 11 days in the summer of 1943, Allied bombers conducted six major air raids on Hamburg. Historians have called this sustained period of bombing the Battle of Hamburg; the citizens of that city, however, refer to it as "die Katastrophe." How was this notoriously dangerous mission carried out--and how, amazingly, did everything go exactly according to plan for the Allies? Using the perspective of the flight crews on both sides, and the citizenry below, the answers come into brilliant focus.

Day Bomber
by Arthur Eyton-Jones
The RAF's daylight bombing offensive was carried out in parallel to its night operations for most of the Second World War. These daylight operations were as deadly for their aircrews as for the enemy: the risks were great and the casualties high. This is the vivid eyewitness testimony of an RAF navigator who flew daylight operations in Bostons, Mitchells and Mosquitoes from 1942 to 1944. He saw many of his own squadron wiped out and survived a ditching in the North Sea which killed two fellow crew-members. Arthur Eyton-Jones' story is one of survival against the odds.
