The Fear In The Sky, Vivid memories of Operational Aircrew in World War Two

B1771

The author has written this book as a tribute to the Aircrew Association, which disbanded in 2012. With the passing of the last survivor of WWI, suddenly the survivors of WWII are rapidly dwindling with most now into their 90s. The associations which meant so much to them are now disbanding because their last members are now few in number and growing frail. This book is an excellent tribute to RAF bomber aircrew and has taken first hand accounts from a representative cross section of a typical bomber crew.
