This is the first time that Sir Arthur Bomber' Harris's own papers covering his three and a half years at Bomber Command have been published and made available to the general public. The book also contains an introduction by Sebastian Cox, an Air Staff Memorandum written immediately after the war and a revisionist German viewpoint by Horst Boog. It stands as a landmark in the controversy that still rages over the man who led Bomber Command's campaign in the Second World War.

I was particularly interested in the beginnings of the AGLT. Were 460 Squadron at Binbrook along with 49 Squadron at Fiskerton the first squadrons to be fitted with the device? Some other siutes feature other squadrons but there was too much of a connection between the code name 'Village Inn' with the annex to the officers' mess at Binbrook, also called the 'Village Inn' for me to let go the view that was prevalent at Binbrook when we arrived there in late August 44 that we were the first squadron to be fitted. Pages 109 and 110 of Harris'accountput the matter at rest. Yes! we and No.49 were the first.
