Descripción

Patrick Stephens Limited, Sparkford Nr. Yeovil, Somerset, 1994. UK first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 256 pages, map, illustrations, appendices, glossary, bibliog, index.----------------------------------------------------------In July 1944 RAF Bomber Command launched three raids on the railway junction and yards at Revigny-sur-Ornain, in France. Some 41 Lancasters were lost, and 231 airmen perished. Here, for the first time, is the full story of those raids, from the original planning right through to the day the last evading survivor returned to safety 10 harrowing months later. The book marks the 50th anniversary of the raids on this strategically important target, for which a terrible price was paid. It details the planning, execution and aftermath of the raids, combining the military considerations with the stories of the 59 surviving airmen: some eventually made their way back to Britain, others became prisoners-of-war and tells of the French people's efforts to shelter the evaders, the activities of the "maquis" in their forest hide-outs, and the attitude of the retreating Germans as the American liberating forces came ever nearer.
