Book Details

This unique three volume reference work provides a vital tool for those researching the combats that took place over Europe, whether from the RAF or Luftwaffe viewpoint

Throughout World War Two the pilots of RAF Fighter Command fought to command the skies over Europe; from 1939, the Battle of France and the Battle of Britain, to D-Day and the assault on Hitler’s Reich.

Each time an RAF fighter pilot claimed to have brought down an enemy aircraft in combat he was required to submit a Combat Report, giving details of his claim for enemy aircraft destroyed. Until now, however, there has been no single document listing these claims day by day. The wartime records are fragmentary, the details of individual pilots claims scattered in many different RAF files.

Noted historian and author John Foreman, has now decided to make available the results of his many years of research and to provide the definitive list of claims submitted by RAF Fighter Command pilots for enemy aircraft shot down in the Second World War. Each entry provides the following details: Date, Location, Type of aircraft shot down, Claiming pilot and his unit. The author has included claims for aircraft destroyed, shared, probably destroyed and damaged.
