You're right NickM. No bibliography in the book (Hikoki ed.). No mention at the end of the 1st chapter either.

It's in the Preface.

Thank you so much Edward. Sadly I don't think I will get my hand on it anytime soon.

Seriously why would I lie on this .

Page iv of the Hikoki edition, the three last sentences of the first column:
"The mission on 28 May 1944 was planned to deal a large blow to the German oil and armament industry. It would, however, never get a place in history among the famous American air operations on dates such as 17 August and 14 October 1943, with missions to Schweinfurt and Regensburg, the 6 March 1944 mission to Berlin or the 11 January 1944 raid on Oschersleben. Missions like these have already been covered in some excellent books."

No lie. I mean no specific bibliographic reference (title, author,...) about an excellent book about January 11th...
