About this book
Following on from his bestselling "Fighter Boys", in this very different book Bishop looks back at the lives, human realities and the extraordinary risks that the painfully young pilots took during the strategic air offensive against Germany. "Fighter Boys" sold over 126,000 copies in the UK alone, and this sold over 25,000 copies in hardback since publication. 'This is a terrific book, so riveting, exciting and moving that it must help bring back the Bomber Boys to their rightful place of honour. A true war memorial.' Montagu Curzon, "Spectator"
Patrick Bishop looks at the lives and the extraordinary risks that the painfully young pilots of Bomber Command took during the air-offensive against Germany from 1940-1945. As featured on the BBC 1 documentary BOMBER BOYS, presented by Ewan McGregor.
