Synopsis

Over 10,000 Australians served with Bomber Command, a highly trained band of elite flyers who undertook some of the most dangerous operations of World War II. They flew mission after mission over France and Germany, knowing that the odds were against them. Stretched to breaking point, nearly 3,500 died in the air. Their bravery in extreme circumstances has barely been recognized. Peter Rees traces the extraordinary achievements of these young aviators. He tells their hair-raising stories of battle action and life on the ground. And he recounts how, when they returned to Australia, they were greeted as Jap dodgers and accused of 'hiding in England while we were doing it tough'. This is a book as compelling, as full of life and exciting as Desert Boys and The Other Anzacs.

Excerpt

An often underestimated richness in life today and in realms of science is the vast amount of information that may be immediately accessed and combined, adding ever new dimensions to beings’ search for meaning and happiness and to those who wish to avoid getting stuck in unproductive and often boring loops of activity.

Building on many years of experience, and with a keen sense of social responsibility, my friend Geoff shares his suggestions on a caring society for leaders from business, government, and the social and private sectors.

Comparing and combining the solutions and experiences given over thousands of years by humanistic cultures and religions with the latest of today’s practical and statistical knowledge, I see a powerful and convincing force for good appearing with this book. May it benefit many.
