435 clean well bound pp with two photo sections amidships -almost a kilo packed for post - review >>> Good account of the bomber war over Europe from the survivors themselves, telling of the pre-mission tensions, the horrors of suddenly finding yourself in an out of control aircraft, watching crew of other craft trapped in sections falling out of the sky. Even in the unlikely event they manage to bail out, they still faced drowning in the sea, bad landings, hostile populations that string them up on lamp posts, etc and here >>> Wilson has built the book around the experiences of the aircrew. The major phases of the battle (Berlin, Nuremburg, Normandy, etc...) are written from the crews' perspective, and they produce a convincing and absorbing narrative.
