Overview

In 1944, the author, and six other young men were brought together by chance to run bombing raids over Germany for Bomber Command. There was 'Mike' (the author), Ray, George, 'Dig', Paul, Les and Harry. When statistically, nearly half the aircrew men of the RAF Bomber Command were killed in action, it is no wonder that they always flew with an eighth passenger - fear.

According to Len Deighton, Miles Tripp's first-hand account of his crew's bomb raids is "written with a clinical dispassion which underlines the horrifying drama". Deeply moving - though never sentimental, this story of friendship and fear, illustrated with maps and black and white photographs, makes for compulsive reading.
