BATTLES WITH THE NACHTJAGD

by E .W. Boiten & Martin W. Bowman

The authors examine the parallel developments of RAF night bombing, and night fighting in the Luftwaffe up to the climax of the strategic bombing offensive in 1945 and the introduction of the German Me 262 jet night fighter. They have traced surviving aircrew from both sides and have matched many Bomber Command losses to German night fighter claims. The narrative is extensively illustrated with more than 400 rare and mostly unpublished photographs from the personal collections of veterans.

SS-Totenkopf-Standarte "Ostmark", as well as from Danzig citizen volunteers to reinforce other existing Danzig units for the impending invasion of Poland.
