Veteran aviation historian and author John Foreman continues his blow-by-blow history of the air war over Europe. Joined by German historian Winfried Bock, John follows his 4-volume, account of 1941 by detailing the actions of January to April 1942. The hour-by-hour operations of every day and night are recorded with loss tables for RAF Fighter, Bomber and Coastal Commands, Fleet Air Arm, and the Luftwaffe in the west.

Significant operations include: The Channel Dash – The escape of the German battleships through the Dover Straits; Operation Biting – The Bruneval Raid and the capture of the German Radar secrets; Circuses and Ramrods begin again; Operation Chariot – The attack on the St. Nazaire dry dock; The Lübeck fire raid; Operation Margin – The daylight raid by Lancasters on Augsburg; The Baedeker Raids begin; Operation Bluebeard – The attacks on the Tirpitz at Trondheim.

The content of these books is ideal for historians and researchers who already have a good understanding of RAF and Luftwaffe operations and who wish to expand their knowledge of the subject.  Illustrated throughout.
