Nachtjagd War Diaries Vol 1 An Operational History of the German Night Fighter Force in the West, September 1939 - March 1944

Dr. Theo Boiten has written an excellent book about the German night-fighter force during the Second World War. The book is a nice combination of detailed information of each night’s operations and lists with all German claims made during each night. All claims is also verified, if possible, with Allied losses. I like very much this kind of book with with day-by-day texts followed up with lists of the claims. The only thing I miss is an additional listing on the losses of the night-fighter force (like in Keskinen/Stenman’s Suomen Ilmavoimat series) and an index (but that is perhaps in Vol. 2, but that volume, I will order as soon as possible.

Rating 4/5

The book is available from: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Nachtjagd-Diaries-Operational-History-September/dp/095547356X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1237314700&sr=1-1
