Ladislav,

First welcome to the forum.

Could you be a bit more specific - dates or units involved?

A good place to start looking would be the three volume work "The Blitz Then and Now" and "The Battle of Britain Then and Now" these will give you quite a lot of detail on different raids.

Another possible, but older, book is Francis Mason's "Battle Over Britain".

I have the first two volumes of "The Blitz Then and Now" so can help you with the raids up until May 1941. I also have copies of the other two books.
