Much has been written about the WWII bomber offensive mounted against Germany by the RAF, but much less about the top secret technological developments aimed at reducing the heavy losses sustained by the attacking aircraft at the hands of the German defences. In 1943 100 Group of the RAF was formed to integrate the units operating an electronic combat and intelligaence war against the Luftwaffe and German anti-aircraft defences. Radar, radio and spoofs were among the weapons ranged against the efficient German night fighters and guns. As one side gained a technological advantage this was quickly countered by the other and thus the conflict was finely balanged, almost to the end of hostilities. This battle, confined mainly to the night skies, has been little publicised and this detailed account follows it from both side, with many first hand-accounts as well as tracking the various electronic devices and aircraft used. This a first edition of 1996. 232 pages including three appendices and index, b/w photos throughout, with some drawings, diagrams, tables etc. Blue hard covers with gilt spine titles VG+, internally excellent, no inscriptions. Colour art/pictorial DJ also VG+. N° de ref. de la librería 003806

Reseña del editor:

RAF Bomber Command's 100 group was formed in late 1943 to consolidate the various squadrons and units that had been fighting a secret war using electronics and radar counter-measures. This was an attempt to confuse the enemy's intelligence systems and intrude over his airfields and thus reduce the heavy losses by the main force. This is the story of how these top-secret missions were conducted by this specialist force with full details of the airborne equipment used. The activities of the elite bomber and night-fighter crews and their specially equipped aircraft were cloaked in mysterious British code-names such as "Serrate", "Mandrel" and "Airborne Cigar". The meanings of these are explained, as well as the German operations such as "Gisela".
