Night After Night

by Max Lambert

Softcover, 458 pages

Reviewed by Paul Harrison

During the bomber war over Europe 1939-45, 1850 New Zealanders, one in three who served in the RAF’s Bomber Command during the war, paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Max Lambert has taken the memories of a wide range of the survivors of this intensive campaign and has recalled them in this book.

He weaves accounts from pilots, navigators, engineers, wireless operators, gunners and bomb aimers into a highly readable account of the horrors of aerial warfare. Imagine the sudden terror of a night fighter attacking from complete darkness, the impact of cannon shells into the thin aluminium frame of your aircraft some 16,000’ above Germany, the subsequent break-up of the aircraft, and finding oneself falling to earth in the dark hoping that your parachute will work.

A recommended read for those interested in the struggles faced by young airmen over Europe during WWII.
