The Battle of Britain is over. But the Battle of Germany has just begun.
By night and day, RAF and USAAF bombers drive deep into enemy territory, striking at the heart of Germany’s war effort.
Squadron Leader George Yeoman, veteran of the skies, has orders to protect the bombers on their long-range missions. He and his men will support in the elusive de Havilland Mosquito, a versatile plane made from wood but capable of stinging the Luftwaffe and sucking the fight from its airmen.
Across the channel, Major Joachim Richter, Yeoman’s counterpart and adversary, bravely leads his squadron out each night to intercept the Allied bombers before they destroy German cities.
The fight will be long and gruelling, but engineers behind the scenes on both sides are racing to build a plane that may soon decide the battle, the fighter jet.
Will Yeoman survive the fight or will this be his last?

Robert Jackson describes " the Battle of Germany in the summer of 1943 when the RAF and the USAAF bombers went deep into enemy territory striking at the heart of the German war effort. The loss of skilled airmen was appalling for the Luftwaffe's fighter defences were stronger than ever before. To protect the bombers, the RAF formed a long-range fighter force and equipped it with fast, powerful de Havilland Mosquitos.Squadron Leader George Yeoman was selected to command the new Mosquito Squadron unit which spearheaded the Allied bomber support. Their task was to seek out the Luftwaffe in Occupied Europe." Yeoman and his elite No.100 Group summed up their motto of "Confound and Destroy". Jackson relates stories and the history of this brave and adventurous squadron. 148 pages. Size: 148 Pages Language: eng Language: eng Language: eng. Seller Inventory # 002694
