Synopses & Reviews
Ian McLachlan presents a compelling collection of true-life accounts by USAAF fighter pilots flying from England during the Second World War. Some are the result of detailed post-war research by the author into aircraft crash sites; others are the memories of those who were lucky enough to survive the war; some are stories gleaned from the letters written home to loved ones by pilots who were destined not to survive the war. Each story is supported by a unique selection of personal and combat photographs.
