A vivid, first-hand account of the tension and excitement of flying missions over Nazi Germany

The British and American bomber crews of the Second World War often had to endure the most terrifying conditions. Not for them the glorious, all-or-nothing exhilaration of the Battle of Britain pilots - rather, the slow dwindling of courage as mission followed mission, the long, freezing, ear-shattering journey to the target, the bursting flak, the prowling night fighters. Then, if they were lucky, the long haul home, sometimes nursing a battered, barely flyable machine, often perilously short of fuel.

Bruce Lewis flew in thirty-six such raids. In this book he records, in his own words and those of his fellow survivors, the events that made operational flying such a fearful experience.

This is a blisteringly honest account of life for the Second World War bombers.

“Interesting read”

Very interesting book even more special as my Uncle that FTR 2/3rd November 1944 receives a lovely tribute from Bruce Lewis from the time they were based together.
