NESBIT, Roy Conyers. Torpedo Airmen : Missions with Bristol Beauforts 1940-1942. London: William Kimber, (1983). First Edition. Pp (7),8-234,(6). Illustrated with maps, diagrams and photos to text, some full page. 8vo black cloth. "Some of the most dangerous missions of any in the wartime RAF were those under taken by the crews of the Bristol Beaufort torpedo bomber. So few airmen survived these confrontations with the enemy and so many of their operations came under the cloak of Admiralty secrecy that little has been written about these dramatic events. [...] Here are the vivid stories of a suicidal attack on the Scharnhorst, a night-time torpedo attack on Cherbourg, [...] a dramatic episode in the "Chanel Dash" [...] The sinking of an Italian cruiser, the skyjacking of an enemy aircraft and a forced landing in the middle of a battle on North Africa." -from the dust jacket.
