About this product
- DescriptionCanadian and British airmen engaged in fierce and deadly battles in the skies over Europe during the Second World War. Those who survived often had to overcome incredible obstacles to do so -- dodging bullets and German troops, escaping from burning planes and enduring forced marches if they became prisoners. In one story, a tail gunner from Montreal survived despite being unconscious when blown out of his bomber. Ather story describes how the crew of a navigator from Ottawa used chewing gum to fill holes in their aircraft. And ather tells how a pilot from rthern Ontario parachuted out of his plane and became the target of a German machine-gunner, but within hours 120 Germans surrendered to him. These painstakingly researched stories will enable you to feel what w-aging veterans endured when they were young men in the air war against Nazi Germany.
