Sample text

By 30 August, Hitler, demonstrating once again his fatal inability to separate national policy decisions from personal pique, withdrew his order protecting London and encouraged Göring to retaliate. On 5 September Göring publicly promised to do so. At the same time a crisis arrived in the Battle of Britain; the Luftwaffe, in spite of heavy losses, had reduced Fighter Command to a state where British aircraft losses exceeded new production, and overall pilot experience had begun a serious decline.

Bomber Command lost 17 out of 36 Wellingtons dispatched. These raids flew into the teeth of Germany’s heaviest air defenses, those specifically designed to protect the fleet and important naval bases from British attack over the North Sea. 17 The fate of these missions, which failed to reach German airspace other than Heligoland Island, shook the faith of the leadership of Bomber Command in the ability of their current generation of day bombers to penetrate into Germany, whether or not they flew tight, self-defending formations.

Aircraft already in service needed modifications such as flame dampeners while aircraft on the drawing board or on the production line also required modifications for night. The RAF had to upgrade airfields to conduct large-scale night operations. Finally, given the primitive state of equipment, night flying placed a deadly surcharge of 300 percent over and above the accident rate for daylight flying. This penalty applied to each and every aircraft taking off on night operations or training flights, even those that failed to drop a single bomb.
