Over Christmas I read Air War Over East Yorkshire, an interesting book by Paul Bright about WWII aviation in the East Riding. It avoids the dryness of a lot of military books, and unusually has a fair amount of data about the Luftwaffe as well as the Allied forces. As the home of much of the RAF’s night-bombing force, East Yorkshire was also frequently the scene of Luftwaffe night intruder raids.

When the United Kingdom declared war on Nazi Germany at the outset of World War II it controlled to varying degrees numerous crown colonies, protectorates and the Indian Empire. It also maintained unique political ties to four semi-independent Dominions-Australia, Canada, South Africa, and New Zealand-as part of the Commonwealth

The book is chronological starting with the pre-war period, before quickly delving into Operation "Barbarossa," Germany's attack into the Soviet Union. The book then moves to the defense of Moscow, the summer campaign of 1942, and the Battle of Stalingrad. It then goes on to cover the air battles of the Kuban and Kursk during 1943, the lifting of the siege of Leningrad in 1944, and the drive westwards to Berlin. It finally concludes with a chapter on the defeat of the Japanese Kwangtung Army in 1945.

After the war, two master bombers claimed to remember that they had been told clearly that this attack was intended to impress the Soviets with the hitting power of our Bomber Command. This book offers a fresh and provocative look at the role of the USA in World War II. It spent four months on the nonfiction bestseller lists in Europe when it was first published in Belgium in 2001. Since then it has been translated into French, German and Spanish.

Yet the great national commitment to victory in World War II stands out as a singular shining moment of cohesion and unity. The fight between isolationists and interventionists over America’s future role in the world, a fight that turned into a political and sometimes real brawl for the presidency in the 1940 election, proved lower and even more vicious than what passes for political discourse today.

In most accounts of the air war over Britain in summer 1940, the events over East Yorkshire are mentioned only in passing, yet it was there, on August 20th, that the first enemy aircraft fell to the guns of a Polish fighter squadron in the RAF, less than a mile from where these words are being written. It was also where the 'north-east town', as Hull was identified in the news bulletins of the day, suffered its prolonged agony under the bombs of the Luftwaffe. Indeed, the very last British civilians to die as a direct result of Luftwaffe bombs in World War II were killed in Hull on March 17th, 1945. As the home of much of the RAF's night-bombing force, East Yorkshire was also frequently the scene of Luftwaffe night intruder raids. This book, based on years of in-depth research into primary sources, personal accounts and experiences, reveals many new facts and gives long-overdue recognition to the events and people who fought, lived and all too often, died, in East Yorkshire during 1939-1945.
