Illustrated. 8vo, dark grey cloth with gilt titles to spine. "The Second World War is the subject of a large and growing literature. We have heard from he novelists and the newsmen, from the politicians and the generals. This book, however, tells an entirely different story. It tells the story of an ordinary airman, a Canadian who served as a navigator in the RCAF from 1941 until 1945, first in the Boston and then in the famous Mosquito. The narrative is based on personal diariesand is all the more moving for the simple, straightforward manner in which Douglas Alcorn, who flew 51 operations against the enemy and won the DFC, describes the events that helped to decide the outcome of the war. To the military historian, this book will be of unique value ion that it establishes the importance of Intruder operations in the ultimate defeat of the Luftwaffe. To the general reader it will be something more than that: an exciting, highly readable and extremely touching account of what it is like to be young and to live, gaily and with dignity, in the presence of death." - from the dust jacket.
