Synopsis: The second volume in this study assesses how, from the autumn of 1943, technology further aided the Luftwaffe s night fighter force while the intensity of RAF strikes against German oil and manufacturing targets, and also eventually against Berlin itself, increased. This resulted in a climactic battle of attrition for both sides in the night skies over the Reich. The author relates the development of both US escort strategy and the German principle of deploying mass-against-mass which resulted in some of the most ferocious air battles of the war in late 1944. Just as the Allies believed that air superiority had been won, the Luftwaffe introduced its revolutionary new jet fighters. Dr. Price relates the story of the strategic air offensive over Germany from both the perspective of technology as well as from the gripping and often tragic accounts of those of both sides who fought in this epic campaign.
