Best memoirs/first person accounts?
Best squadron histories of the battle?
Best aircraft books?

There are quite a few errors in Christer's book concerning details on the Bf 110 units. Cross check many of the details. One example: pages 237&238. He says: "...The Gruppenkommandeur, Hauptmann Martin Lutz fell in the air over Bristol. A little further north, the ace Oberleutnant Wilhelm Richard Rössiger perished in the flames of his burning Bf 110..."

What? Lutz's Bf 110 came down at Bussey Stool Farm, near Tarrant Gunville, not Bristol.

Rößiger down further north than Bristol? Rößiger was shot down into the Channel. All the Bf 110 crashes on land are accounted for in this raid.
