This is the second in a series of books chronicling the things endured by the Bomber Boys, at all levels of the bombing campaign over Europe. Young people would do well to read this and learn to appreciate all that they have, due to the sacrifice of this earlier generation!

A very good book for anyone interested in the bravery and sacrifice of the young men of Bomber Command. A very factual account of the raids on occupied Europe, the diary excerpts give a really clear picture of what life was like for the aircrew and how quickly it could all end.

I knew the Lancaster was the worse plane to get of out of all Bombers but what Harris did was unthinkable to read the personal experiences was mind boggling what brave men they were.

Factual, well written, and a good and compelling read. It beggars belief how these young men carried on despite nightly fear, fright and seeing their colleagues and friends quite literally blown out of the sky. It really is a travesty of justice that only now the survivors are being award campaign medals. There being so few of them still with us 70 or more years after their exploits.

This was a very moving book that was extremely well written.; It does not shy away from the faults made by high command in this country and many of the sacrifices made by the young men could and should have been avoided.

I found that the authors style did not suit me and found contents of this book very disappointing and feel there are better books on Bomber Command out there e.g. See author Jack Currie
