The Fighter Command War Diaries series is a unique account of RAF Fighter Command’s role in WWII and forms a complete record of every operation and every loss and claim for enemy aircraft destroyed.
Each volume continues to analyse each day’s fighting including details of the Luftwaffe’s activity, significant combats, biographies of the top aces and orders of battle.
The publication of the fifth and final volume of this mammoth work brought the series to a total of 2,000 pages of detailed information that will become a vital reference source for historians far into the future. The definitive and authoritative nature of this mammoth work assures its place in many reference libraries.
Strictly limited numbers of these books are still in stock. Hardback editions of Volume 3 have already sold out, but have been re-printed in soft bindings due to demand from those who missed the original editions.
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.
