With the passage of time rapidly depleting the ranks of WWII combat veterans, the chance to learn what battle was like first hand is fast disappearing. Nothing can quite surpass a truthful personal account of such experiences to remind us of the courage of the young but also to dispel the myth that war is somehow glamorous. In his collection of 20 short stories, related to him by the men themselves, best-selling author Mel Rolfe has done just that. This is a must-read for anyone interested in the subject.

Review:

Rolfe's documentation of 20 crews in Flying into Hell is as dramatic as bullets punching holes in the fuselage and as fearsome as any flight may be into the unknown world above Berlin. Ditching in the Mediterranean, dodging German troops in the Ardennes or surviving a spell in Buchenwald - these consequeces of the bombing raids are powerfully brought to life in these stories of men who went to war in the skies --Oxford Times
