In this detailed history, full of facts, figures, names, anecdotes and both humorous and harrowing examples, Night after night is a deeply moving account that is fulsome in detail and personal material provided by survivors, family members, colleagues and fellow serviceman.
1850 young New Zealand airmen died in bombers flying from British bases during the war. Many more were wounded and others became POWs after surviving horrendous crashes and forced landings.
