Nearly 6,000 allied bombers were shot down by the night fighter arm of the Luftwaffe during the Second World War in what was a bloody and fiercely contested battle for air supremacy. This book traces the parallel development in RAF night bombing and night fighting in the Luftwaffe, from the pioneering efforts on both sides in this new form of airwar up to the climax of the strategic bombing offensive in the final year of the war.
Extensively illustrated with many rare and previously unpublished photographs, and drawing on personal recollections of over a hundred surviving combatants from both sides, Nachtjagd is an absorbing account of this deadly nocturnal war.
