And Some Fell on Stony Ground: A Day in the Life of an RAF Bomber Pilot by Leslie Mann

A unique glimpse of the deadliest profession of the Second World War.

In June 1941, Flight Sergeant Leslie Mann, a tail gunner in a British bomber, was shot down over Du?sseldorf and taken into captivity. After the war, wanting to record the experiences of the RAF's 'Bomber Boys', he gave voice to his private thoughts and feelings in a short novella, uncovered only after his death.

Visceral, shocking and unglamorous, this compelling story transmits as rarely before the horrors of aerial warfare, the corrosive effects of fear, and the psychological torment of the young men involved. The sights, sounds, smells, and above all the emotional strain are intensely evoked with a novelist's skill.

And Some Fell on Stony Ground is introduced by historian Richard Overy, author of the acclaimed book, The Bombing War (2013).To view this DRM protected ebook on your desktop or laptop you will need to have Adobe Digital Editions installed.
