 About the Book 

Peenemunde on the German Baltic coast was Germans rocket research establishment before and during WWII. Martin Middlebrook tells the story of the RAFs raid on Peenemunde in August 1943, a raid unusual for the precision nature of the bombing by so many bombers and the fact it was scheduled for the night of a full moon. The author draws on a wealth of personal memories from not only the RAF and Luftwaffe crews, but also the German and foreign workers on the ground. These memories along with Martin Middlebrooks research makes this an exciting and informative read.
