Condition: Near Fine - in Near Fine DJ. Very slightly ruffled edges of DJ otherwise a very well presented copy.

Largely based on fact, and on the first hand experiences of the author who, as a young Sergeant Pilot, was shot down whilst flying a Wellington bomber in 1942. As the RA.F stepped up its bombing campaign in Germany and the Occupied countries, more and more aircrew were falling victim to the steadily increasing number of flak guns and to the night fighters hunting under the cloak of darkness. , Those airmen who survived often managed to evade immediate capture and were able to make contact with the Resistance. Gradually, more and more Allied aircrew were successfully ‘processed’ and passed down a carefully prepared escape line to a neutral country and eventually back home to fly again.
