Bomber Crew Summary

Bomber Crew by James Taylor

Long after the Battle of Britain, the aircrews of RAF Bomber Command risked their lives night after night during the Second World War. Over 55,000 of the airmen never returned from these missions; a further 10,000 became prisoners of war. And yet Bomber Command has been mired in controversy and its veterans - all volunteers - have never been awarded a campaign medal. Their crucial contribution to the outcome of the war has all too often been overlooked.

BOMBER CREW exposes the bravery of these men using gripping first-person testimony from the surviving pilots and crew. For them this was a time of incredible hardship and adrenaline, courage and friendship, and their stories bear witness to the strength of the human spirit in times of incredible danger. Never before has their story been so vividly told. This is also a revealing look at the history of Bomber Command itself, from the early days through to eventual victory in 1945.

From the terrifying action of the bombing raids to the intimate personal accounts of heroism, tragedy and triumph, this is the ultimate account of these brave men and their contribution to the Allied victory.

Bomber Crew Reviews

This is a remarkable book . . . a vivid history of a vital era, replacing popular notions with something more plausible and even more impressive. * Daily Express on SPITFIRE ACE *
These young men went out to fly knowing that they only had a slim chance of completing a tour of operations and they went on doing it. My admiration for them is undimmed. * Max Hastings, Mail on Sunday *
