Hmmm, it looks like a great book - except the cover of the US edition, is, well, silly.
Why have they got a silhouetted Grumman Avenger, with US markings, flying over a bombed German city? Never happened, they were carrier based torpedo bombers.
The Hamish and Hamilton UK edition has some powerful and accurate Paul Nash paintings of (I think) Whitleys on its cover.
Does this matter? Not to the dead, I know - but why not do the homework and not just grab images off the internet to appeal to American audiences?
