  • In this extract 'we fly with D. E. Charlwood, a navigator in the R. A. F. Bomber Command, and his gallant comrades on a massed raid during the early part of the intensive bombing campaign by which the Allies so weakened Germany that she was unable to ward of invasion and final defeat in 1945. The raid was a "flap" - an Air Force term for an attack by moonlight.'
