9781848842021: The Cinderella Service: RAF Coastal Command 1939 - 1945

This book reveals the vital contribution that RAF Coastal Command made to the Allies war effort. Although often referred to as the 'Cinderella Service' because by its nature, it did not gain the recognition it deserved and was overshadowed by Fighter and Bomber Commands and considering that it was not given priority in terms of aircraft and equipment, its wartime record was second to none. The two main roles of Coastal Command were anti-submarine work in the Atlantic and anti-shipping operations against enemy warships and merchant vessels. This work looks at every aspect of the command's work, equipment and aircraft and draws upon many first-hand accounts. Lengthy and comprehensive appendices cover Orders of Battle, Commanders, U boats sunk, ships sunk aircraft losses and casualties.

Review:

"What this book achieves is a look at every aspect of Coastal Command's work including equipment and aircraft and draws upon many first-hand accounts.\information becomes available with comprehensive appendices covering Order of Battle (including in some cases FAA squadrons'lent' for Coastal Command duties, Commanders, U Boats and Ships Sunk, Aircraft Losses and the Command's Casualties. To these valuable references in added a first class Bibliography. This is a paperback reprint, albeit very well produced with pictures which will be new to many plus Maps and a Glossary. Excellent value, excellent material and hugely useful to the historian, amateur or otherwise." (Fleet Air Arm Officers' Association)
