Price includes shipping in Canada (large format book)
The Canadian contribution to the massive effort that was Bomber Command during the Second World War was huge. Over 10,500 Canadians were killed - almost one quarter of Canada’s wartime dead.
Through archival photos and excerpts from wartime documents, this book tells the story of the young Canadians who served with the Canadian Bomber Squadrons - their efforts during the early years and how they evolved as the war progressed, the technological changes and the tactical and strategic evolution that contributed to the ultimate victory.
Also included are stories of individual heroics and sacrifices as recorded by the airmen themselves at their debriefings.
