Content descriptions

General Note: "Based on the unpublished memories of RAF bomber command pilot Flt Lt Neil Nimmo DFC and the original personal and 3rd Reich papers relating to Luftwaffe NJG 4 pilot HPTM Helmut Bergmann RK"--T.p.
Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references (p. 218-224).
Summary, etc.: Perilous Moon is a lavishly illustrated book that observes Occupied France during World War II through the eyes of British bomber pilot Neil Nimmo and newly discovered period photographs. Shot down by Luftwaffe nightfighter pilot Helmut Bergmann, Nimmo and his crew were the German's sixth of seven victims in 46 minutes. With seven wrecked Lancasters and 38 Allied airmen killed, Bergmann had singlehandedly turned what should have been a relatively simple RAF raid into a life-long nightmare. With barely time to parachute from Q-Queenie, his stricken Lancaster, Neil Nimmo's unholy adventure had only just begun. Unusually, Perilous Moon follows both pilots, Nimmo and Bergmann, through the war after that April night, and continues to observe them as the Occupation of France comes to a sticky end.
