Fly: True Stories of Courage and Adventure from the Airmen of World War II

Author(s): Michael Veitch

Australian Studies

Fly is Michael Veitch's second collection of 24 interviews with pilots, navigators, and gunners--now all in their 80s--who flew during the Second World War.

Here are stories of bravery and fear, moments of terror and relief, and vivid details of flying under fire. A passion for history and a boyhood obsession with World War II aircraft inspired Michael Veitch to record these stories of combat, fear and comradeship before they vanished.
