'Well illustrated throughout, this is a fitting tribute to those detailed in the book and all their colleagues who made the ultimate sacrifice.' (RAF News, July 2014) 'Written to a high standard ... Each story is, by its very nature, tragic, but the authors refrain from using highly emotive language, letting the facts, and the survivors, speak for themselves.' Britain at War magazine Book of the Month (September 2014)
