I'm interested in learning more about the RAF Pathfinder Force (PFF) in WWII, so am looking for some good reference books on the subject.

I've got a decent understanding of their overall creation, aircraft they used, and type of ops they ran, but would like to know more in detail.

Specifically looking for:

1. Unit History and Expansion
2. Unit Composition – Squadrons and Strengths
3. Special Equipment Used
4. Tactics
5. Operations and Estimated Effectiveness
6. Numbers and Types of A/C on Ops – preferably for each raid, if available.
7. Kills by RAF NFs and Intruders
8. Losses – preferably details by date, raid, etc.
9. Personal narratives of the various missions/sorties

I'm especially interested in line items 3 – 9.

Any suggestions?
