This is a great account of a desperate time for Germany. Reading it, I really felt the sense of how hard it was to assemble the aircraft, fuel and pilots needed for this last assault on the 'Terrorflieger' that was laying waste to their cities. The combat itself is well described, with a real sense of the loss of men on both sides. Fantastic!

A very detailed reconstruction of an obscure but amazing event: a mass use of suicide ramming tactics against bombers. Some of the P-51 v Me-262 combat is astounding. It would make a better air-action movie than some of the rubbish Hollywood has produced recently. Has this been optioned yet?
