This is the tale of three Australian bomber squadrons at war, flying with RAF Bomber Command in the early part of Britain’s bombing offensive upon Nazi Germany, from August 1941 to September 1942.Nos 455, 458 and 460 Squadrons operated Hampden or Wellington twin-engine bombers from bases in Yorkshire or Lincolnshire, all too often flying impossible missions, using inadequate equipment and navigation methods to try to hit the most formidably defended targets in the world.

This book also provides the first ever detailed combat history of these three squadrons in their initial incarnations, using original sources to lay out a coherent narrative of what was attempted.
