This monumental series has become an essential work of reference for both aviation historians and genealogists. The series covers individual aircraft losses in the European Theatre and identifying units, aircraft, crews, and the circumstances behind each loss, day by day. Since Volume 1 was first published in 1992, the author has continued to research the subject and amassed a wealth of new information, doubling the number of pages in the second edition. This edition includes further details on the aircraft and the crews involved to provide more detailed accounts of the losses. The nine volumes in this series, many of which have been reprinted over the years, provide a comprehensive listing of all Bomber Command aircraft losses between 1939 and 1947 in the European theatre of operations, along with information about the fate of the aircrew on board each individual aircraft.
