The introductory chapter is entitled ‘The Waning of German Air Power’ and notes that German factories are concentrating on producing fighters rather than bombers. Britain now has the Mosquito and long range fuel tanks enable fighter escorts to prove cover for longer. The V1 flying bomb has become a threat and the ‘Dambusters’ raid raised morale. Consideration was being given to post war air traffic.
