    Default Tame Boar tactics ?

    Looking at a raid in 'The Bomber Command War Diaries' - Middlebrook Evritt, it describes that the Tame Boar tactics were developing. It was a raid where the night-fighters managed to get into the bomber stream and cause heavy losses. Could someone please explain these tactics?

    Any help appreciated.

    Regards
    Peter

    Hello Peter,
    If you look here: http://www.gyges.dk/Wilde%20&%20Zahme%20Sau.htm you'll find some excellent explanations of both Wilde Sau and Zahme Sau tactics.

    Read two of Middlebrook's books, one on the Peenemunde Raid and the other on the Hamburg raids.

    Middlebrook's book on the Berlin Raids also covers the subjet as far as I can remember.
