Operation Big Ben(2004)
The Dive-bombing Spitfire Missions
A non fiction book by Craig Cabell
Operation Big Ben was one of the best kept secrets of World War II. Through Squadron histories, log books, official reports, and interviews with the people who flew clipped winged Spitfire to dive-bomb VI and VII rocket sights towards the end of the war, the story is at last fully told. The book includes detailed squadron histories as well as clear details of the strategies employed and missions executed by the Spitfire squadrons that flew. It has firsthand recollections of the men who completed the dive-bombing raids, and the cutting edge technology they used.
