On 23 November 1943, 100 (Bomber Support) Group of RAF Bomber Command was formed. The object was to consolidate the various squadrons and units that had been fighting a secret war of electronics and radar countermeasures, attempting to reduce the losses of the heavy bombers - and their hard pressed crews - in Bomber Command. The book contains many first-hand accounts from pilots and crew and provides a fascinating record of 100 Group's wartime history.

This book is a fitting tribute to those who flew with 100 Group who by their actions saved many lives, sometimes at the expense of their own. Highly recommended.

Aviation News

The text is well-written and readable and is clearly the result of much research and first-hand information. Good photos, too.

Aircraft Illustrated

This is a very good air unit history with the extra advantage of adding a great deal of information about electronic warfare in the sky. Recommended.

The RAF Bomber Command World War II-era largest contingents exploits – Main Force and Pathfinders – are well known. But Group No. 100 (Bomber Support) has gained rather less fame.
A deep, comprehensive research of its operational activity was made by Martin Bowman and Tom Cushing. In a vivid, but meticulously detailed work they put together in a well-balanced way the descriptions of high-level and low-level freelance, radio countermeasures and electronic intelligence missions, tactic methods, aircrafts and electronic equipment used by Group No. 100 crews.
Backed up with former RAF and Luftwaffe aircrew personal accounts, this is the true story of airmen, ground crew and technicians efforts to support the Strategic Bomber Offensive against the Third Reich, to reduce the Allied losses and to suppress the German air defense effectiveness.
