Bowman was fighting in a war, but then on April 23, 1945, David encountered an unexpected and terrible twist of events that changed his life forever. After a fairly routine enemy target attack on a munitions dump near Rangoon, Burma, his Liberator aircraft was making its way back across the Bay of Bengal, bringing David and his comrades back to home base for a debriefing and a beer. Ten miles from the shores of Burma, David suddenly heard his skipper say these chilling words: 'Dinghy! Dinghy! Prepare for ditching.' David Bowman, in his easy, humourous style, shares his true life story experiences of that fateful day in 1945 and the days following. He invites his readers to join him in reliving the ups and downs of the experience in the Bay, 'welcoming you all to the Bay of Bengal'." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - book lightly cocked, very light edge wear.
