The comprehensive sequel to "Battle-axe Blenheims", this book presents the true account of the heroic exploits of the famous bomber squadron, No. 105, between 1942 and 1945. The No. 105 Squadron was the first to fly the de Havilland Mosquito, and pioneered low-level and shallow-dive attacks on enemy targets. In the face of deadly anti-aircraft fire, these operations resulted in a high casualty rate, with many awards for bravery handed out to aircrews. The book includes first-hand accounts from surviving Mosquito crews, together with many previously unpublished photographs.
