From the rear side cover: Some six thousand New Zealanders volunteered during WWII to serve as aircrew with RAF Bomber Command. Over two thousand were killed. Many more were injured or became prisoners of war yet the survivors still recall that "those were the best days of our lives': Kiwis Do Fly is a highly illustrated collection of veterans experiences during training and on operations. They recall, times on leave, friendships and tragedies, and for some, the women they met and brought home as wives.

The condition of the book is generally very good. The covers have one or two very minor scuffs, and some light wear along the edges and corners (including a small area of bumping in the top left corner of the rear side), but the spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
