True stories of courage and adventure from the airmen of World War II. All over the world during the Second World War, thousands of young men who had never been near an aeroplane left offices, farms and classrooms to learn to fly and fight in the greatest conflict the world had ever seen. They fought over deserts, cities and jungles, in-single-engine fighter aircraft, heavy bombers, transport planes and flying boats. In this collection of twenty one candid and moving stories, Michael Veitch uncovers some of the untold stories: Australian, British and even German. He captures the events that defined a generation of men before their stories are lost forever. Paperback, photographs, small format, 308 pages.
