The birth of The Pathfinder Force would revolutionise Bomber Command’s war, but who were the people behind it and who was Don Bennett, the trailblazing inter-war aviator that Arthur Harris appointed to lead the new Target Finding Force, and then undermined him at every turn?

In his new book, The Pathfinders, author Will Iredale looks at the Pathfinder Force and at the men and women who made the PFF’s moto, “We Guide to Strike”, so terrifyingly effective.
