Hardback, 1st Edition. Published in 2008 "Special Op: Bomber" is an action-packed account of the battle in the skies over Europe, from the perspective of the men who undertook the highly dangerous job of flying the bombers. Throughout the unrelenting and destructive air campaign there were certain vital operations that required the airmen of the RAF and the USAAF to take their skills to new levels, and to display courage above and beyond the call of duty. "Special Op: Bomber" draws upon a wealth of these courageous veterans' stories, many of them previously unpublished. The vivid first-hand accounts convey the peril of Allied air combat in World War II with breathtaking immediacy. This hardback edition has been personally signed by the author on the title page.
