Title: To Shatter the Sky: Bomber Airfield at War.
Description: Cambridge, Patrick Stephens. 1984, First Edition. (ISBN: 0850596785) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 233 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H). Pictorial endpapers, many b&w photographs. "Beginning with a general description of a typical wartime bomber airfield, (this book) goes on to relate in their own words the personal stories of several crews and their missions. The locales vary, as do the targets, the results and the nationalities of the raconteurs, but the overall image is one of an Empire of bold young men treading where Goring boasted no enemy would succeed in treading. All the courage, drama, tragedy and, indeed, humour of war is contained in this compelling documentary which will appeal both to modern historians and enthusiasts as well as to those who remember the dark but strangely exhilarating days which it recalls." Slight twist to spine, wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, faint erased pencil marks at top of front free endpaper, small amount of colored pen underlining to text and small pen notation in bottom margin of page 143. Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds - also on flap-folds and on hinges; light fading to spine color; light rubbing; three small edge tears archivally taped. Very Good -/Good+.
