OCEAN BRIDGE; THE HISTORY OF THE RAF FERRY COMMAND
AbstractOcean Bridge is undoubtedly the best military-history book I have had the pleasure of reading all year. It presents a fresh body of knowledge on a neglected topic of an otherwise much-described Second World War. The body of the work – an authoritative and well-referenced text of 306 pages - is vastly enhanced by an extremely attractive cover; four detailed maps; dozens of meaningful photographs; and a good, particular and accurate index of no less than 43 pages! The fact that Ocean Bridge is printed on acid-free paper is an added bonus: it will literally be enjoyed by generations of future historians and aviation enthusiasts.
