|[an error occurred while processing this directive]|Author: HALPENNY, BRUCE BARRYMORE. FOREWORD BY WING COMMANDER KEN WALLIS. Title: To Shatter the Sky: Bomber Airfield at War.
Description: Cambridge, Patrick Stephens. 1984, First Edition. (ISBN: 0850596785) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 233 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H). Many b&w photographs. "Beginning with a general description of a typical wartime bomber airfield, (this book) goes on to relate in their own words the personal stories of several crews and their missions. The locales vary, as do the targets, the results and the nationalities of the raconteurs, but the overall image is one of an Empire of bold young men treading where Goring boasted no enemy would succeed in treading. All the courage, drama, tragedy and, indeed, humour of war is contained in this compelling documentary which will appeal both to modern historians and enthusiasts as well as to those who remember the dark but strangely exhilarating days which it recalls." Bump at bottom of spine, tiny bump at bottom corners of boards and at top of spine, very tiny tear/wrinkle at top of page 111/112. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds. Very Good/Very Good+.
