On Monday 6 March 1944 the US 8th Air Force for the first time mounted a full-scale daylight attack on Berlin, capital of the Third Reich. As a result of the hard-fought battles on the way to the target, over it and during the return flight, 69 US four-engined bombers and 11 escorting fighters failed to regain their bases; in no other day’s fighting, before or after, would the 8th Air Force lose a greater number of aircraft. This book describes the day’s events as seen through the eyes of more than 160 Americans and Germans in the air and on the ground.
'The time has come', reported German ace, General Adolf Galland, 'when collapse is in sight.'
Drawing on groundbreaking research and extensive interviews with veterans from both sides of the battle, Target Berlin brings to life a single, critical day's fighting with all the pace and edge-the-seat tension of the best suspense thriller.
'Masterful. Ethell and Price have done an outstanding job of capturing the tension, valor and skills demonstrated by airmen on both sides of the air battle over Berlin' Air Power History
'The gripping narrative is equal to graphic scenes of World War II bombing campaign movies like Twelve O'Clock High and Command Decision' Military Review
