About this Item

octavo, xii, 236pp. In the summer of 1944 the Germans launched more than 10,000 flying bombs at Britain most of them towards London. Thousands of people were killed many more injured. RAF fighter pilots flew round the clock patrols desperately trying to shoot the robot rockets down and stop them from reaching their targets. The introductory chapter of Buzz Bomb brings the reader right into the cockpits of the Tempests, Mosquitoes, Spitfires and Mustangs while setting the stage for the battle. From the launching pads in Northern France to panic in Whitehall as the menace grows, this book takes the reader through the day by day battle, not just with the pilots but also the Anti-Aircraft gunners who were blasting away at the flying bombs. Recollections from people who survived the buzz bomb attacks bring the battle into life as people tell about their fears and experiences. Was it a success? Was it worth the cost? Did it achieve it's objectives? Were all the efforts of the fighter pilots and gun crews trying to stop the dreaded flying bombs, worth it? Did they make a difference? Did they save lives? These questions will be answered in Terror from the Sky. Illustrated with photographs. Jacket not price clipped. New. black boards in pictorial dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory # 19755
