Backroom Boys Edward Smithies

The men and women who built, serviced and flew warplanes for the RAF in the Second World War were all fighting for a common cause, all working for a new and better world. Bomber crews, fighter pilots, ground staff, factory workers, designers and engineers all played their crucial role in the defeat of Hitler. What was it like, making history? And were these their finest hours? This remarkable book tells the moving stories of the real men and women, loving, living and working in dangerous and frightening conditions and those who fought in the war, on the ground and in the air. This is the authentic voice of history in the making, a vivid and powerful testimony from a nation that came together and kept the RAF flying and fighting.
