Raymond H. Fredette is a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel who during World War II flew 31 combat missions over Germany.Review:
"Simply put, this is one of the finest historical accounts I have ever read on the events of the First World War. Fredette does a splendid job recreating the German aerial onslaught against England beginning in the Spring of 1917. . . . The Sky on Fire not only provides a riveting account of the bombing flights, it also probes deeply into the political and psychological impact the raids had on both sides of the channel. It is interesting to note just how seriously the British Government considered frightening and engraving the British populace. What truly makes this book intriguing however is the human element. While Fredette masters the art of statistical completing, he flavors the entire work with personl accounts of air combat. . . . [This] is a book you may have a difficult time putting down." ―Aerodrome
