The Reich Intruders: RAF Light Bomber Raids in World War I.

The Reich Intruders: RAF Light Bomber Raids in World War II. by Martin W. Bowman. This is the story of 2 Group RAF during World War II. Much of it is told by the men who flew the Blenheim, Boston, Mitchell and Mosquito aircraft that carried out many daring daylight and night-time raids on vitally important targets in Nazi occupied Europe and Germany. These were not the famous thousand bomber raids that hit the wartime headlines, but low-level, fast-moving surprise raids flown by small formations of fleet-footed and skilfully piloted twin-engine light bombers

Containing the 'light bomber' squadrons during WW II, 2 Group was the RAF unit that carried out low-level and daylight attacks on Nazi targets. Without strong defensive fire, they depended on surprise and hugging the ground to protect them. It did not always work.

Containing the 'light bomber' squadrons during WW II, 2 Group was the RAF unit that carried out low-level and daylight attacks on Nazi targets. They experienced steady losses- tellingly, three Wing Commanders in June 1940, and many more brave crews in years following. Their Blenheims, Bostons and Venturas were vulnerable to the Me 109 defenders. It took Mosquitos to even the odds.

Great story about a lot of unsung heroes.....I especially liked the section about the "Boston Boys".

Containing the 'light bomber' squadrons during WW II, 2 Group was the RAF unit that carried out low-level and daylight attacks on Nazi targets. Without strong defensive fire, they depended on surprise and hugging the ground to protect them. It did not always work. They experienced steady losses- tellingly, three Wing Commanders in June 1940, and many more brave crews in years following. Their Blenheims, Bostons and Venturas were vulnerable to the Me 109 defenders. It took Mosquitos to even the odds.
After honing these hit-and-run techniques on ships, plants in occupied cities and Gestapo Headquarters, they joined the Second Tactical Air Force and supported troops sent to free the continent. Their rocket and strafing attacks struck fear in German hearts.
You will be impressed by the number of well captioned photos, yet the text is cramped and jumps from one episode to another:
' ...'We found another Mosquito, which seemed to be going in the same direction as us, so we joined him for the journey home. This was uneventful; we didn't even get shot at over Weert this time. Maybe the Germans didn't consider two aircraft to be worth wasting ammunition on. And besides, we were heading for home.'
---the narration continues:
Arnhem, meanwhile, was being attacked by 107 and 613 Squadrons. Nigel Gilson takes up the story:
'Arnhem identified itself for us--the natives, or their uninvited guests, were distinctly hostile--but we rejoiced in our speed and ploughed in. At first one could watch things quite objectively; one gun team was firing explosive shells, with tantalizing persistency, right on our track, and I wandered absentmindedly by how much they would miss us. Then we dived to attack. I bent to switch on the camera, began to rise, then instinctively ducked again, only to be conscious of an explosion and a shower of perspex splinters. I jerked up, looking anxiously at Phil, and heaved a sigh of relief when I saw that he was OK and that we were climbing--neither of us was quite sure what happened in those 30 seconds....' (p. 163)
