Had the "Peenemunde Raid" (17-18.8.1943) by Martin Middlebrook
Currently reading "The Schweinfurt-Regensburg Mission" (17.10.1943) by him
And "The Nuremberg Raid" (30-31.3.1944) by him on my book backlog :)

Superb reading





Do these books cover both sides or are they just from the Allied perspective?

Just got my copy of the Churchill--Australia book. Will start it soon.

These books cover both sides, though the Allied side in more detail. Lots of eye witnesses are cited. I recommend these books very much, too.

In addition from the same author: "the Berlin Raids" and "the battle of Hamburg"

Besides. the raid on Schweinfurt and Regensburg was not 16 Oct 1943 but 17 Aug 1943.

My grandfather was a meteorologist at the Obertraubling airfield 1941-1945 as a major of the Luftwaffe and an eye witness of the August raid on Regensburg. It was the shock of his life to see all the dead apprentices in the Messerschmidt factory area after the raid (descripted in detail in the book). He would never talk about it. My grandma told me about it when I was a young boy.

Thanks for correcting my mistake about the Schweinfurt-Regensburg mission - it was 17th Aug 1943.

Yup the books are great even as "standalone" - they usually start with the strategic situation, opponents situation (training/organization/experience/effectiveness, etc), then how the plan was was developed, how the eyewitnesses spent their respective day before the action, then the action itself superbly detailed down to individual plane losses and actions where possible and again from both sides... I would say its superbly researched and then nicely woven into a story line taking all sides into account (like spoof raids/jamming/supporting operations/etc...)

I'd recommend "A Long Days Journey Into War: Dec 7th 1941". It does not deal solely with Pearl Harbor but with ALL that was going on anywhere in the world starting at 1 minute after midnight until 1 minute before midnight in practically the same place (just shy of 48 hours total time).
