4.0 out of 5 stars True life exploits of Bomber Command, 5 April 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Lancaster Down!: The Extraordinary Tale of Seven Young Bomber Aircrew at War (Hardcover)
Lancaster Down follows the true life exploits of the author's grandfather, Arthur Darlow. Pilot of a Lancaster during his induction, training and becoming a pilot for Bomber Command in the second World War.
The text details both the human emotional side of coping with the successes ( and failures ) of night time raids over Germany and occupied France, and also the technical aspects of precision bombing at night which are both fascinating and harrowing.
Later in the book, Arthur Darlow's quest for freedom after being shot down over enemy territory. Contact with the French resistance, capture by the German's, internment in a POW camp and eventual escape provide a graffic and thrilling read that relives the struggles of war.
Lancaster Down is a truly enthralling read which will satisfy both the technical historian and general public one and all and should not be missed by anyone with an interest in the war efforts during the 40's.
