Description

Taken from over 1000 wartime broadcasts given anonymously by RAF and WAAF personnel between 1941 and 1943, servicemen and women describe their WWII experiences in their own words. Bringing to light a myriad of human stories behind the official communiqués, these accounts of operations over mainland Europe, Norway, the North Sea and the English Channel show us the great range and effectiveness of our Allied air power. The legendary days of Dunkirk and the Battle of Britain; the winged victory in North Africa; fighters sweeping over France; bomber sorties to Germany and Italy; night fighting, train-busting, and intruder operations highlight the work of these brave service personnel. This new combination of two original books, We Speak from the Air and Over to You continues with Ferry Command and the training of pilots in Canada, the remorseless harrying of U-boats and the adventures of air crews forced down in ocean or desert. These wide-ranging personal broadcasts from RAF officers and airmen offer a rare insight into the experiences of those intimately involved at that crucial time in British history.
