For Bomber Command: Failed to Return I teamed up with fellow military aviation authors to tell the stories of some of those who served with RAF Bomber Command and failed to return from operations. The carefully selected stories demonstrate the diversity of operational duties undertaken by the aircrews, while highlighting the extremes of danger they faced, often day after day and night after night. Most would not survive their ordeal; approximately half of the men who were lost serving with Bomber Command have no known grave. Many others would see out the war incarcerated in an enemy POW camp.
The authors, drawing upon surviving veteran accounts, family archives, official documents, wartime memoirs and letters, flying logbooks, and relative and witness recollections, piece together the extraordinary, gripping, yet ultimately tragic events surrounding the losses described. Bomber Command: Failed to Returnensures that the memories of all the young men, some would even say boys, who sacrificed
all, are kept alive.
Lest we forget.
