SQUADRONS! No. 39: The Douglas Boston & Havoc - The Intruders

Good Day All,

My SQUADRONS! series is now made of another title: The Douglas Boston & Havoc - The Intruders

The Douglas Boston or Havoc is one major aircraft of WW2. Designed as a light bomber, it proved to be very versatile and was used with success in various roles over all theatres of operations. In the RAF it served as a night fighter for defensive role (see SQUADRONS! 24), but in the same time the RAF found the type perfectly suited for offensive operations by night to harrass the Germans airfields when the Fighter Command went to the offensive in the spring of 1941. This book tells how the Boston/Havoc was used between 1941 and 1943 in the intruder role from the UK by three squadrons, Nos. 23, 418 RCAF and 605. 52 pages, over 40 photos, 6 colour profiles.


This is the third part dedicated to the Boston/Havoc after Squadrons! 22 (The Australians) and 24 (Night fighters)

Thank you for writing this Mr. Listemann and posting the news of its publication.

I own a copy of your book on Havoc night fighters and have learned a lot from it.

I will be purchasing a copy of your new volume on Douglas Intruders this week.

Edward
