I bought this as it has the best write up about my father that I have ever read. It is also an excellent record of many of the heroes of Bomber Command, so many of whom made the supreme sacrifice and some of whom survived to tell us what it was really like to face the flak and the night-fighters time after time and watching their circle of friends gradually shrinking. We owe them our freedom and we must never forget them.
Best of all,I got it brand new through Amazon for half the price it costs in bookshops.Highly recommended!
This new account by Michael Ashcroft gives a real insite and balanced view to their courage and dedication to their tasks. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys accounts of bravery.
