Tales of Lancasters and Other Aircraft Summary


Tales of Lancasters and Other Aircraft: Dangerous Skies in the Second World War by George Culling

Of every 100 operational airmen in the Second World War, nearly seven were killed flying in England and more than three severely injured in crashes. With a total of 12,398, the number of non-operational casualties was significant. Operational casualties were of course chillingly grim - over 56,000 airmen died in the war. George Culling was a 19-year-old Lancaster navigator whose own experiences often involved battling tricky and dangerous conditions. Fascinated by the ever-present dangers for airmen even well away from combat, he has collated tales from comrades and combined them with his own to preserve some of the unexpected, inconvenient, dangerous, and often downright bizarre experiences that frequently typified daily life for airmen in the Second World War.

About George Culling


George Culling is a nonagenarian who has belatedly set down his accounts of bizarre experiences at war when, as a 19-year-old, he navigated a Lancaster on flights of up to 10 hours using only the stars to plot their position. He became an expert in astro-navigation after the war ended before spending a long career in teaching.
