A Short War, The history of 623 squadron by Steve Smith.
This is a history of an often overlooked and neglected bomber squadron, No.623 Squadron. Formed from No.218 (Gold Coast) Squadron in August 1943 the squadron flying from RAF Downham Market participated in a number of the important raids on Germany during the summer and winter of 1943, losing a number of crews in the process. Made up almost entirely of Commonwealth skippers the squadron flying the Short Stirling had its fair share of difficulties, losing ten crews before it was disbanded in December 1943.
This 260 page history will include numerous never before published photographs, crew by crew biographies, individual aircraft histories and much more.
