160 pp, 12 1/4" H. Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w with photographs, drawings/diagrams. "Through Dan Patterson's remarkable photography, we get to see, close up, the cramped, cold, exposed turrets that so many young men fought and died in. (The author) examines the role each aircraft played in the war, and veterans describe in spirited detail what it was like to fly and fight in the war's most renowned aircraft. For the first time in print, 'Gunner' reveals not just the turrets of such famous aircraft as the Lancaster and the B-17, but also the rarely seen gun positions of aircraft such as the German Me 410, the Italian S.M. 79 and the Russian Il-2 Shturmovik. Many of the featured aircraft saw battle and have been preserved or meticulously restored. This book allows us to imagine what it must have been like to be an air gunner in the Second World War." Book is Fine. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, slight curl at bottom edge of front panel.
