Synopsis

Bomber Command: Failed to Return by Steve Bond, Steve Darlow, Julian Evan-Hart, Sean Feast

The casualty numbers are simply staggering - 55,573 airmen who served with RAF Bomber Command during the Second World War lost their lives in the fight against Nazism. A further 9,838 airmen became prisoners or war and 8,403 were wounded in action. These extraordinary and unprecedented loss statistics accumulated as the RAF bomber crews played their part in the prosecution of Allied grand strategy: defending the British Isles from invasion, blasting the enemy industrial infrastructure, supporting the Allied land campaigns, targeting the enemy Navy and U-boat threats, and countering the German V-weapon menace. In this second volume concerning Bomber Command aircrew who 'failed to return', Fighting High Publishing again brings together acclaimed historians to tell the stories of those who became casualties. Illustrated throughout with colour and black and white photographs, the vast majority previously unpublished, Bomber Command: Failed to Return II continues to ensure that the memory of the bomber boys, who sacrificed all, is kept alive. 'Lest we forget.'
