Synopsis

Fighting Back 1940-1945

In this powerful and moving work of history, Patrick Bishop brilliantly captures the character, feelings and motivations of the bomber crews and pays tribute to their heroism and determination.
There was nothing romantic about their struggle. Often barely out of boyhood, they lived on bleak bases, flying at night on long, nerve-wracking missions that often ended in death. In all, 55,000 were killed, counting for nearly one in ten of all the British and Commonwealth war dead.

They were among the best of their generation, who were called on to carry out one of the grimmest duties of the Second World War. Bomber Boys brilliantly restores these men to their rightful place in our consciousness.
