Sub Hunters – Australian Sunderland Squadrons In The Defeat Of Hitler’s U-Boat Menace 1942-43

Nos. 10 and 461 Squadrons of the Royal Australian Air Force flew Sunderland flying boats from bases in Wales and Devon as part of RAF Coastal Command; these two squadrons flew long-range daylight missions over the eastern Atlantic, patrolling Britain’s southwest approaches. They hunted and killed U-boats transiting between their mid-Atlantic hunting grounds and their bases in Bordeaux and fought furious air battles over the Bay of Biscay against Luftwaffe Ju 88 long-range fighters.  This book includes many rare and unpublished photographs and accounts of dramatic air battles over a turbulent sea, hundreds of miles from land and without hope of rescue.
