Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A senior RAF veteran and researcher has used the medals and decorations awarded during World War II to present a picture of the war as seen by the ordinary air and ground crews of the RAF, backed up by a unique collection of photographs.

As Sir Ivor Bloom points out in his Foreword, 'A few names have become household legends,' and one is forced to wonder whether 'The Few' have not stolen the limelight from 'The many'. If that is so, Air Commodore Pitchfork's book is a timely reminder of the debt we owe to all those gallant airmen whose aerial adventures he so vividly records, are worthy representatives.
