Double Column. 4to, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. “Peenemunde is the first in the series – The Great Raids. [...] The attack by six hundred aircraft of Bomber Command on the highly secret German Research Station of Peenemunde during the night of 17/18 August 1943 was one of the most important and effective of the Second World War. The destruction of the laboratories, work-shops and administrative complex represented a severe check to the enemy's advance in the field of rocket and pilotless airplane development; demolishing at a single blow his plans for a saturation onslaught calculated to destroy Britain's will to continue to fight.” - from the dj.
