Description

Heroic and moving accounts of the R.A.F. in war time by the author of Fair Stood the Wind for France and The Darling Buds of May

'After 60 years of writing and reading, I would place H.E. Bates as one of the best short-story writers of my time' Graham Greene

First published under the pseudonym of Flying Officer X, H. E. Bates's stories of the heroic exploits of British bomber crews during the Second World War created a sensation when they appeared in 1942, selling over two million copies all over the world. Bates lived among the painfully young pilots and recorded their lives, and those of their loved ones, with an emotional attention that deeply moved the generation that lived through the war, and an intensity that reverberates down the decades.
