The final, climactic volume of Wilson's acclaimed bomber war trilogy.
Kevin Wilson has spent most of his working life as a staff journalist on British national newspapers, including the Daily Mail and latterly the Daily and Sunday Express. He is married with three grown-up sons and a daughter.
A brilliant insight into life in the air and on the ground, and
considers why a force that took the war into the heart of Germany
on a nightly basis was ignored when the fighting stopped ... a long
way to answering why there will be a memorial to these brave airmen
in a London park * Observer *
Despite their enormous courage and huge sacrifice, Britain has never formally acknowledged the bravery of the men who fought through the Second World War in Bomber Command. The men's valour was betrayed by politicians and they have been denied a medal honouring their campaign * Sunday Express *
A sobering, deeply moving and historically fascinating account ... Kevin Wilson has brought some striking new research to bear in this brilliant work ... As is made painfully clear through anecdotes, many veterans of Bomber Command are left with terrible memories of what they endured in the struggle for national survival
Masterly approach ... it makes fascinating reading and will be of huge interest to all who remember the dying days of the last war * Church of England Newspaper *
