    Simultaneous release of the thrilling new volume of true stories from airmen of the Second World War, from the author of Flak (also available in audio by Bolinda). Michael Veitch's life-long obsession with the aircraft of the Second World War led him to conclude that every single person who flew, or flew in them, has at least one extraordinary story to tell. With most of these veterans in their 80's, he knew that it was a matter of urgency to find them now, before their personal stories disappear forever.

    Brooke P. Anderson says: "Excellent book from RAF and RAAF point of view"
    "Great flying Narratives."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Fly to be better than the print version?

    This is read by the author, in his Australian accent, about RAAF and RAF flyers.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story's of incredible men of WWII.
