Comments: The content of this book are based on personal interviews, personal service stories among my mates, members of the Royal Australian Air Force, and with historic records of airmen who were mainly trained in the Empire Air Training scheme. The scheme was set up to keep up a supply of trained aircrew to replace the immense numbers who were giving their lives.
This book also tells of Australians among the heroic crews of Bomber Command and of their amazing courage and the record of achievement that is recorded forever in this history of Australian courage. It tells in detail the high price paid by aircrews to achieve victory, the loss of comrades and the extreme hazards faced day after day, which called for great courage and effort that in the end stole their youth.
