Every veteran has a story. Sometimes these stories become part of family folklore. Sometimes they are too terrible to speak of.

In April 1943 Cyril Burcher bombed a German U-boat, killing its entire crew. Thirty years later, a letter arrived for him out of the blue from the daughter of the U-boat captain. Cy Borsht jumped out of his burning Lancaster and parachuted into even more danger, being taken prisoner by the Germans for the duration of the war. Stan Pascoe can still remember the tension of the briefing room before every mission, which disappeared the minute he was in the aeroplane.

For each of these airmen and the many others interviewed in this book, the very fact that they survived the war is miraculous enough; that they are still with us today to tell their stories is another amazing feat.

In these thrilling, heart-stopping, haunting stories, the day-to-day bravery and luck of these men is brought into fierce focus once more.

Each story provides detailed information about the aircraft and associated equipment used at the time, and also goes into the psychological strain that the war had on these airmen, sometimes lasting long after their service ended. - Cassandra (QBD)
