About this title

Synopsis:

Battles of the Nachtjagd traces the parallel developments in RAF night-bombing and night-fighting in the Luftwaffe, from the pioneering efforts on both sides in this new form of airwar up to the climax of the strategic bombing offensive in 1945 and the simultaneous introduction of the Me 262 jet in the German night fighter army.

About the Author:

Theo Boiten studied history at Groningen University in the Netherlands. He graduated in 1992, specialising in an overall history of the developments of the night air war over the Third Reich during the Second World War. Since graduating, he has worked in his spare time on his doctoral thesis at Leiden University, on the sea warfare in the North Sea during World War II. He currently works as a freelance historian and interviewer and has written five books: Blenheim Strike, Nachtjagd; The Night Fighter versus Bomber War over the Third Reich 1939-45; Raiders of the Reich: Air Battle Western Europe 1942-1945 (which he co-authored with Martin Bowman); Bristol Blenheim and Night Airwar.
