Chased by the Sun - The Australians in Bomber Command in WW2
The Australians who served in Bomber Command were highly trained members of an elite corps. They were thrown into a war of repeated bombing raids in which they had to perform complex tasks under extreme pressure and danger. They flew mission after mission with full knowledge that the odds of survival were against them - 4000 Australians died in Comber Command - but they pressed on regardless. Hank Nelson brings to life the extraordinary experiences of these Australians. He depicts their fears, despair and courage in the face of the most terrible experiences. Paper back, illustrated, 319 pages.
