After the invasion of France in 1944, the air bases at Banff, Fraserburgh and Peterhead in northern Scotland were used to launch attacks on U-boats and merchant ships in the waters of south-west Norway, disrupting Germany's vital supplies of iron ore. Thoroughly researched and drawing on first-hand accounts, Andrew Bird's study examines this nine-month campaign in detail and reveals the largely unheralded contribution of the Banff Coastal Command Strike Wing to final victory in 1945.
