Beschreibung:
Published with Imperial War Museums - a powerful fictionalised memoir of a bomber crew member, introduced by award-winning historian Richard Overy
A unique glimpse of the deadliest profession of the Second World War.

In June 1941, Flight Sergeant Leslie Mann, a tail gunner in a British bomber, was shot down over DÃ sseldorf and taken into captivity. After the war, wanting to record the experiences of the RAF's 'Bomber Boys', he gave voice to his private thoughts and feelings in a short novella, uncovered only after his death.
Visceral, shocking and unglamorous, this compelling story transmits as rarely before the horrors of aerial warfare, the corrosive effects of fear, and the psychological torment of the young men involved. The sights, sounds, smells, and above all the emotional strain are intensely evoked with a novelist's skill.
And Some Fell on Stony Ground is introduced by historian Richard Overy, author of the acclaimed book, The Bombing War (2013).
