Wellingborough 1987, Patrick Stephens, first UK edition, 7x10, Fine/Fine condition, 159 pages, massively illustrated. appendix. From 1942 until the end of the war in Europe, the aircraft of the US 8th and 15th Air Forces provided one of the main thrusts of the massive Allied bombing campaign against Nazi Germany. Bombing by daylight in huge formations, casualties were heavy as aircraft after aircraft succumbed to flak and fighter defences. For those not killed outright bythe onslaught only balingout - over hostile enemy territory - could offer a hope of survival. Here, at first hand, are the stories of the airmen faced with sudden jumps into that dangerous unknown. For most, and particularly the injured, capture was immediate - imprisonment inevitable. For some evasion was possible, but rarely for long. For others, taken prisoner, escape became a constant preoccupation. Martin Bowman's revealing narrative, supported by dozens of rare and unusual photographs, describes in adrenalinpumping accuracy the furious air battles that led to the predicament of many shotdown airmen as well as the personal campaigns they fought to regain their freedom. Fascinating for its gripping and factual re-creation of the bomber-fighter/flak encounters, the earthbound confrontations between PoWs and Stalag guards provide a real insight into the war as those who 'fell from formation' saw it. Many incredible, never previously published stories of escape & evasion and detailed accounts of the liberation of some of the main POW camps provide the rest of the story of the young men whose only wish was to be 'home by Christmas'. Anyone with an interest in the conduct and events of the Allied strategic air campaign in Europe during the Second World War will find here a new and useful perspective on that conflict.
