From the rear side cover: This book tells the story of a Special Duties Operators, the highly secretive 'eighth' man in a 101 Squadron Lancaster crew who used his specialist knowledge and training to thwart the Luftwaffe in the night skies over Germany. But is is more than this....
It is also the exciting and often tragic story of eight young men and the maelstrom of a tour of operations that included eight trips to Berlin, the massacres at Nuremberg, Leipzig and Mailly-Le-Camp, and even on one occasion surviving a mid-air collision over Belgium!
It is also the story of 101 Squadron, whose attrition rate at the time was so apalling that, in the course of their six-month period with the squadron, they became the only crew to complete a tour of 30 operations, in the process winning two DFCs and a DFM between them
The condition of the book is generally excellent. The covers are clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound - the book looks like it has never been read!
