In many instances, specially selected and trained crews flew specific sorties, seeking out small targets of utmost importance to the war effort. A number of these operations were filmed by cameramen and RAF Special Duties: A Collection of Exclusive Operational Flying Sorties by the Royal Air Force enables their stories to be told for the first time.

The various exploits in this exceptionally well-researched and gripping book are supported, in many instances, by Flying Logbooks and other materials stemming directly from the pilots themselves. These men were true originals - undertaking hugely dangerous missions against the odds, and often operating as individual aircraft in completely unknown conditions. Accounts in the book include:Cameramen flying on special raids to film precise low level Mosquito sorties, including on the Gestapo HQ in Copenhagen- A Mosquito pilot flying a single aircraft into Germany to cause disruption by setting off air raid sirens- A Stirling pilot flying with radar-jamming equipment to disguise the D-Day invasion- Mosquito pilots attacking targets identified by British SAS units in France- Experience as a wireless operator flying in Churchills personal aircraft- Dropping supplies over Burma.** This electronic edition includes 110 black-and-white photographs **
