"This book takes you, raid by raid, through the author's tour of operational duty over the last five months of 1944. It is a bomber pilot's story, but it i s also about the grinding operational pressure, the brotherhood of the crew and fears of injury and death. It is about a squadron of Bomber Command that bore a barely-equalled burden in operational effort and losses. It is about young airmen t h e a u thor knew, who lived and too often died amid the turmoil in enemy skies." Book slightly cocked. Very Good+/Near Fine
