Originally published in the United Kingdom 20 years ago in a much less extensive edition, A Yank in Bomber Command is the most uncommon story of an American who served as a crew leader in the Royal Air Force Bomber Command.
Taken from the diaries and letters of Robert Raymond, a Kansas City native who flew 30 missions in a RAF Avro Lancaster during late 1942 and early 1943, this authentic and primary document gives the reader a firsthand account of what it was like to feel the wings of a Lancaster; to manage a crew of Englishmen, Irishmen, and Canadians; to see one's bombs pour into the cauldron of war; and to pass on leave through the English countryside and the streets of London at a time when Britain was headline news.
Though Raymond eventually offered his services to the U.S. Army Air Force, for a brief period he was one of World War II's truly remarkable airmen. This selection of his writings from the period offer a full and rich account of his special place in the War's history.
