Product Description

Publisher: Harper Collins

Author: John Nicol

In March 1944 the RAF attacked Nuremberg. It was the costliest in terms of aircraft losses that RAF Bomber Command suffered in a single night attack during the Second World War and 96 Lancaster bombers were shot down with a further ten written-off after landing, leaving nearly 700 men killed or missing. John Nicol has researched archives, newly available government reports and air crews' debriefing notes but the crux of the book is the human angle, through interviews with survivors, revealing the real story of this terrible night.
