Anyone with the slightest interest in the R.A.F. during the Second World War will want to read this excellent volume. Well written by a former R.A.F. wartime pilot, it
provides the reader with a fascinating insight into a very special breed of men - the courageous aircrew of Bomber Command. Flying a remarkable 300,000 operations over enemy territory during the war sadly resulted in fifty thousand of this brave and dedicated force being killed, when eight thousand aircraft were lost in action.
The superb collection of first hand accounts provided by veteran R.A.F. aircrew and support staff, together with a full account of all of Bomber Command's Victoria Cross awards and a section detailing the development of the bomber airfield, make this excellent value for money book, compelling reading. However, the "icing on the cake" for me was the inclusion of a large number of superb and previously unpublished archive photographs.
