Re: Fighter Command's Air War 1941: RAF Circus Operations and Fighter Sweeps Against the Luftwaffe

Not sure what 'post-war' means....

All I can see are Spits, Bf 109 and Blenheims.
While many of 'Dogsbodies' claims are dubious I am equally certain he did his best....under the circumstances. He was very ambitious, but on the other hand he had two very good reasons for that.....

I can also see what Chris means, but it is very difficult in my mind to portrait anything near what a combat scene would look like. A hit and run tactic is quite difficult to picture. Anyone who tried taking photos while doing it??

Anyway 1941 - 1942 - 1943 are very much the forgotten years when it comes to the RAF. It took the USAAF to tip the balance. Hopefully Norman has done his homework and hopefully there are 1942 and 1943 in the pipeline as well.

I for one, look very much forward to get more details regarding these crucial years on the western front.

Cheers
Stig
