Luck And A Lancaster

£5.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

From the Author :-" A pilot's memoir of chance and survival in enemy skies.
For a few brief months in the spring of my life I flew bombers against the defences of Germany. Partly through good training and hard work but mostly through luck, I survived. Many whom I knew were not so fortunate. But we all lived in vital and exhilarating times, the memory of which still seems too important and relevant to be lost with the passing of our generation. My book is an attempt to fix my own memories. I have tried to convey how we, as aircrew, experienced war, how we lived and how we flew. I have tried to communicate the sense of adventure and comradeship. I hope the reader will be entertained and, from time to time, amused. But most of all I hope you will come to the end of "Luck and a Lancaster" with a true and greater understanding of we who served in Bomber Command during those momentous years."

Book in good condition with clean and securely bound pages.Some minor tanning to the page edges and light tanning to the margins inside, but a clear readable copy.Dust jacket in very good condition.Printed in 2001.
