Description

“[Nachtjagd] – WAR DIARIES: Volume ONE” is a comprehensive and meticulously researched book by Theo E.W. Boiten that provides an operational history of the German Night Fighter Force from September 1939 to March 1944.

 

The book offers a detailed chronology of every night on which German night fighters operated, from the first halting efforts in summer 1940 through May 3, 1945. Crisp introductory sections outline the major phases and turning points of the campaign, followed by detailed recountings of each day’s operations. German night fighter claims are cross-referenced with known Allied losses.

 

Much of the information is necessarily statistical, but this is far more than a dry presentation of tables. The chronology is interspersed with mostly new and unpublished accounts from night fighter crewmen. These are always interesting and, as in the case of one night fighter pilot reflecting on the fate of the British crews he downed on Christmas Eve 1943, occasionally poignant.

 

Outstanding photographs, many from crew members’ personal collections and all beautifully reproduced, illustrate both volumes. The authors were able to match approximately 75 percent of German night fighter claims to known RAF losses—a herculean research achievement.

 

The account traces the ebb and flow of the campaign through the Battle of the Ruhr, the Hamburg raids and the costly Battle of Berlin. Of particular note is the information on the employment of night fighters against USAAF daylight attacks; before the American escort fighters joined the fray, the night fighters were used with deadly effect.

 

It is possible to chart the declining fortunes of the night fighter arm, as fuel shortages and less-stringent pilot training standards progressively shifted the burden onto the backs of a dwindling group of high-scoring aces.
