It is told using considerable first-hand experience from the veterans of the campaign, something not really covered in any other books on the subject, together with background information from primary source documents on the tactics and strategy employed.

Stephen Darlow has also written Lancaster Down (978-1-902304-48-9). As documented in D-DAY BOMBERS, American and British heavy bomber units did play a significant role in the Allied success in Normandy. Stephen Darlow's book does a good job of recounting the efforts made by those crews on behalf of their ground counterparts and the price they paid.

Rarely told story of what happened above the beaches through detailed descriptions of various bombing runs. Includes eyewitness accounts of heavy bombers on D-Day.
  • This 2010 Stackpole Books release is a paperback version of the original hardcover put out in 2004 by England's Grub Street. It chronicles the support given by 8th AF and RAF bomber units given during and after the 6 June 1944 invasion of Europe.

    The contribution American and British heavies made to the success of D-Day resulted from the missions they flew to destroy German oil, arm French Resistance units, cripple the transportation system in France and pound German positions and strongpoints as well as bombing the invasion beaches just before troops landed.

    Darlow's narrative is divided into two sections: 'Flightpath to D-Day' and 'D-Day and the Battle for Normandy.' He interweaves the stories of five British and three American bomber crews in his narrative, tracing the crews' histories from their creation through training and eventual bombing sorties. Consequently D-DAY BOMBERS has tons of action with chapters detailing RAF night missions over Germany, 8th AF strikes on German targets such as oil refineries and V-1 sites, battlefield support of US ground troops, etc.

    Interspersed in the narrative are stand-alone accounts of the experiences of other USAAF and RAF bomber crews. Though they were exciting, I thought they slowed the main story and made for a choppy reading experience.

    As documented in D-DAY BOMBERS, American and British heavy bomber units did play a significant role in the Allied success in Normandy. Stephen Darlow's book does a good job of recounting the efforts made by those crews on behalf of their ground counterparts and the price they paid. Recommended.

  • Beachline Bombing was scarce on D-Day because of the danger to attacking troops. My orders said hit Gold Beach in support of the British at 0705 hours. Troops will land at 0725. Our 64000 lbs of bombs hit the beach just 30 seconds early
