Seller ID   20892

160 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0905778693 B&w photographs. "There were thirty-two VCs of the air during the Second World War, yet how many of their names are known today? We have all heard of the exploits of Guy Gibson a nd Leonard Cheshire, but every one of the VCs of the air is associated with deeds equally daring and courageous. In these pages you will read of the forgotten VCs like Kenneth Campbell, who torpedoed the 'Gneisnau' in the harbour of Brest f r o m a h e ight of 50 feet, racing between the flak ships at mast height. William Reid, whose citations reads: 'Wounded in two attacks, without oxygen, suffering severely from cold, his navigator dead, his wireless operator fatally injured, hi s ai rc ra f t c ri pp led and defenceless, he showed superb courage and leadership in penetrating a further 200 miles into enemy territory to attack one of the most strongly defended targets in Germany'; Flight Sergeant Middleton whose 'devotion to d uty in th e fa ce of ov erwhelming odds is unsurpassed in the annals of the Royal Air Force', to quote from the official citation. (This book) reflects the whole war in the air more graphically than any impersonal history could do. The stor y s tart s in the d ays be fore Dun kirk, and finishes a few days before the atom bombs were dropped on Japan." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine faint label mark and tiny erased pencil mark on free front endpaper.
