Backroom Boys : Personal Stories of Britain's Air War 1939-45 Paperback / softback

Part of the Cassell Military Paperbacks series

Description

Nostalgic and moving stories from the RAF staff who kept Britain's aircraft flying and fighting during the Second World War. When we remember the Second World War in the air, we think of fighter pilots and bomber crews.

But what was it like for the men and women working as ground crew and in the aircraft factories who also played a crucial role in defeating Hitler?

What was it like making history? What sense did these individuals have of what they were doing, either at the time or later?

Did they feel they were caught up in the tide of great events? Or were they simply doing their demanding and often dangerous duty?
