'It is somewhere close to midnight on the clock when the men who fought the Second World War will still be with us. I have met just a few of them, sometimes goading them to reveal their experiences, at other times being simply a conduit to the river of their memories, sensing, on occasion, a kind of urgency to get it out there, just so these adventures and tragedies not be lost to future enquiring minds.' Michael Veitch has always been a keen historian and aeroplane fanatic. From a young age he was obsessed with airforce pilots and their machines. And with his gift for chat, he has once again captured the memories of these brave, lucky men who survived the unsurvivable. The risks of not returning from flying missions in WWII were extremely high so the stories are uniquely heroic, almost unbelievable. But these were ordinary men in extraordinary situations and, in this third collection from Michael Veitch, they record their stories for future generations.
