The debt we owe.....,
This review is from: Rear Gunner Pathfinders (Witness to War) (Paperback)
If the fact that the author managed survive the number of operations he volunteered to undertake is bordering on amazing it's the self effacing humility of Ron Smith's book that's truly humbling. Having initially joined the RAF Regiment the author then volunteered to serve as an air gunner in Bomber Command. His operational career started with 626 squadron before, somewhat to his surprise, a move to 156 squadron and PFF.
The book follows the author and his crew through 65 operations seen through the eyes of Lancaster tail gunner and the ongoing battle to overcome the fear and the trepidation of what awaited them. Truly fantastic reading and a fine tribute to a those who served in Bomber Command.
