Luck and a Lancaster : Chance and Survival in World War II Paperback
by Harry Yates
Part of the Airlife's Classics S. series
This book takes you, raid by raid, through the author's tour of operational duty over the last five months of 1944.
It is a bomber pilot's story, but it is also about the grinding operational pressure, the brotherhood of the crew and fears of injury and death.
It is about a squadron of Bomber Command that bore a barely-equaled burden in operational effort and losses.
It is about young airmen the author knew, who lived and too often died amid the turmoil in enemy skies.
