TO HELL AND BACK. True Life Experiences of Bomber Command at War.
- A new edition of Mel Rolfe's successful book containing twenty dramatic but true stories of Bomber Command adventures.
Some of them defy belief - like the RAF bomb aimer who was blown out of his Liberator over Warsaw at 400ft without a parachute and made a poignant return in 1989 to witness the unveiling of a memorial on the crash site. Others defy logic - like two men of the same crew who survived a terrible crash, neither aware of the other's existence but both saved by the tolling of the same church bell. All are riveting.
A journalist by profession, Rolfe has conducted his interviews and prepared the stories in such a way as to take the reader into the events as they happened. To read these accounts is to step back into the war itself.
'This book is a must for RAF bomber aircrew who wish to relive this dangerous period, and an exciting read for anyone interested in WWII aviation.' Intercom, the Journal of the Aircrew Association
