While the fighter aces in their Hurricanes and Spitfires have had their WW2 exploits well celebrated, most of us know much less about the contribution made by thousands of New Zealanders who fought and died in what proved to be one of England’s most potent weapons - Bomber Command. In this detailed history, full of facts, figures, names, anecdotes and both humorous and harrowing examples, Night After Night is a deeply moving account provided by survivors, family members, colleagues and fellow serviceman. "Lambert writes well, neatly blending a narrative of Bomber Command's actions with those of its New Zealand contingent. His facts are reliable, based on the meticulous researches of Errol Martyn and other good sources. Though he is rightly proud of our airmen, he does not pretend that they were all heroes or in any way superior to other airmen. Their collective achievement needs only an accurate, detailed record, and this Lambert has provided." - The Dominion Post
