Night Fighters chronicles the historical, technological, tactical and strategic evolution of limited visibility aerial combat between Great Britain and Germany during WW II. The subjects interviewed for his project were the key individuals responsible for the creation and execution of their respective national policies governing the conduct of the nocturnal air war. The science developed by both nations assisted in increasing the momentum and lethality of that conflict. This arena of WW II produced a plethora of technological innovations, the results of which are seen today in everyday military and civilian life. This book provides a detailed historical analysis of the men, methods, machines and devices that forever altered the course of aviation and scientific history. Where this book differs from previous works is the collective and extensive interviews with the participants of the air war, in their own words. This book also provides an impartial, comparative and contrasting analysis of both sides, and is endorsed by the historical figures.
