The publication of this final volume in the history of the air war over Europe during 1941 brings this ground-breaking project to a conclusion.
With so much attention paid to the Battle of Britain, it is easy to ignore this critical phase of the air war which saw the RAF turning the tide from the defence against the Luftwaffe over the UK to attacking Occupied Europe.
This 1,450 page - four-volume - account details the combats of every day and night and provides loss tables for RAF Fighter, Bomber and Coastal Commands as well as the Luftwaffe in the west.

John was born in 1942 and remembers nothing of the war except for hiding beneath the dining-room table when the flying bombs approached. He began to seriously research the Luftwaffe and air combat in the early 1970s, visiting many Luftwaffe Aces in Germany.
After retiring from the telecommunications industry in 1992 he has concentrated on writing and researching full-time and undertakes contract research for authors and historians from all over the world.
Like John Foreman, Winfried began his research into the air war over Europe in the 1970s – but focused his attention on the Luftwaffe. He is the author or co-author of many books –notably the ‘Die Jagdfliegerverbande der Deutschen Luftwaffe’ series cooperating with Jochen Prien, Gerhard Stemmer and Peter Rodeike.
