Description

Canadian and British airmen engaged in fierce and deadly battles in the skies over Europe during Second World War. Those who survived often had to overcome incredible obstacles to do so – dodging bullets and German troops, escaping from burning planes, and enduring forced marches in they became prisoners.

In one story a tail gunner from Montreal survived despite being unconscious when blown out of his bomber. Another account describes how the crew of a navigator from Ottawa used chewing gum to fill holes in their aircraft. And still another tells how a pilot from northern Ontario parachuted out of of his plane and became the target of a German machine gunner, but within 120 Germans surrendered to him.

These painstakingly researched stories will enable you to feel what now-aging veterans endured when they were young men in the air war against Nazi Germany.
