Sanders DFC - Out of the Darkness

Frank Madill.

The story of WWII Bomber Command as told by Lancaster navigator, Tasmanian Max Sanders. 

Casualty rates among aircrew of Lancaster Bombers were horrendous - six out of every ten who flew were killed. Their courage in the face of almost certain death was extraordinary.

This is the story of Max Saunders DFC, Lancaster navigator, and the crew that flew with him. A story of fortitude, comradeship and the unwavering confidence each had in the other. At just 19 years of age, Max flew in Lancaster bombers with the Royal Canadian Air Force 419 (Moose) Squadron and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for gallantry in action.

Unable and unwilling to talk about his experiences in the night skies over Germany, Max‘s story remained in the darkness of his memory until recently when he met again the men who, in the time of greatest peril were true brothers in arms. It is an inspiring story of endurance, courage and the bond between wartime brothers in arms.

Soft cover, photographs, 211 pages.
