Description

During the Second World War more than a million and a quarter men and women served in the Royal Air Force, the majority against Nazi Germany and its European allies.

 

( … ) This book endeavours to capture the feel and flavour of that R.A.F. experience through the opinions, observations and anecdotes of veterans, the " ordinary bods " - although " special " would be a truer evaluation of many. Each man's or woman's involvement was small in the great scheme of things, but this collection of some 300 individual memories places the experiences in an overall perspective.

 

( ... ) The author, who has written extensively about the men, aircraft and operations of the 1939 - 1945 Air War, contacted more than 300 R.A.F. veterans in the course of preparing this work, including many from the Commonwealth and the once " occupied " countries in Europe. 

 

À PROPOS DE CET AUTEUR
Roger A. Freeman

Roger A. Freeman ( May 11th, 1928 - October 7th, 2005 ) grew up on the family farm in Dedham ( Essex, England ).


In 1943, Martin B - 26 Marauder bombers of the U.S. Eighth Air Force’s 386th Bomb Group arrived at Boxted airfield - less than two miles away - sparking Freeman’s lifelong fascination with the wartime U.S.A.A.F. operating from Britain.


After the war, Roger A. Freeman began to impart his knowledge about the wartime U.S.A.A.F. with articles for aviation magazines and started to collate material for his planned book. The book, entitled The Mighty Eighth, was an instant success and has been translated into several languages.


His overall output of some 60 books also included works about the wartime Royal Air Force, individual aircraft studies, airfield histories and profiles of U.S.A.A.F. units.

À PROPOS DE CET EDITEUR
ARMS AND ARMOUR
Founded at a time when few new publishing houses were being established ( 1966 ), Arms and Armour Press began on Lionel Leventhal’s kitchen table, but grew rapidly to be one of the U.K.’s leading publishers of militaria and military history, with a stable of authors including some of the most renowned specialists in the field ( including Ian V. Hogg, David G. Chandler and Steven Zaloga ). In 1984, Arms and Armour Press was sold to Link House Books ( which owned seven publishers, including Blandford ), and subsequently became an imprint of Orion Publishing.
