Fascinating history of these brave heroes of the skies
on 14 November 2012
If you've ever spent any time in East Anglia, or even more Cambridgeshire / Huntingdonshire, you'll know that you can barely go five or ten miles in any direction without stumbling upon an old bomber airfield. Bomber command as a whole has been well documented over the last few years, and this book focuses on a group of aircrew who took the bravery of the Bomber Boys to a whole new level.Its well illustrated throughout with some fascinating photos, particularly the poignant view of cars parked at Downham Market whose owners had failed to return from ops, and chronologically goes through Pathfinder operations in considerable detail from the forces formation to disbandment. Details of simply unbelievable commitment and bravery - how the hell did these guys go out and do this night after night, week after week, fully aware of the incredible risk, it simply leaves you in awe.
