9780140081145: Nuremberg Raid

This book describes one twenty-four-hour period in the Allied Strategic Bomber Offensive in the greatest possible detail. The author sets the scene by outlining the course of the bombing war from 1939 to the night of the Nuremberg raid, the characters and aims of the British bombing leaders and the composition of the opposing Bomber Command and German night fighter forces.

The aim of the Nuremberg raid was not unlike many hundreds of other RAF missions but, due to the difficulties and dangers of the enemy defenses and weather plus bad luck, it went horribly wrong. The result was so notorious that it became a turning point in the campaign. The target, the symbolic Nazi rally city of Nuremberg, was only lightly damaged and 96 out of 779 bombers went missing.

Middlebrook recreates the events of the fateful night in astonishing detail. The result is a meticulous dramatic and often controversial account. It is also a moving tribute to the bravery of the RAF bomber crews and their adversaries.

As reviewed in the Wall Street Journal:

“Using firsthand accounts, Mr. Middlebrook follows the planning, preparation and execution of the operation in meticulous detail, but he does more than that: Employing hundreds of eyewitness accounts, he shows the raid from the point of view of the German defenses and the civilians on the ground. Factual and analytical, this is a portrait of mechanized warfare at the level of personal experience.”
– Wall Street Journal, March 2016

Book Description Penguin, London, 1986. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Revised Edition, 2nd Printing. 367 pp, 7 3/4" H. B&w maps, diagrams, photographs. "On the night of 30-31 March 1944 RAF Bomber Command took off on what should have been a routine 'maximum effort' raid on Nuremberg. It turned into a major disaster, with Bomber Command suffering its heaviest losses of the war: of the 779 bombers taking part 96 were missing and, due to adverse weather conditions, Nuremberg was only lightly damaged. (This) is a detailed re-enactment of that operation, based on extensive research in English and German archives, and interviews and correspondence with many of the senior officers who planned the raid, together with some 380 RAF and Luftwaffe aircrew who took part, and German civilians in the areas that were bombed. The result is a meticulous and dramatic account of a turning point in the bomber war, as well as a moving record of the courage and sacrifice of the bomber crews. This revised edition contains an important new chapter in which (the author) comments on the dramatic suggestion, made since the original book was published, that the identity of Nuremberg as the target and details of the route to be used were deliberately disclosed to the German by British Intelligence as part of a more important intelligence operation." Interior - small edge tear with crease on page leaf 69/70 - archivally taped, very light browning, otherwise clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor edge wear, soft corner crease on front cover, one crease on spine. Bookseller Inventory # 25805
