To Shatter the Sky - Bomber Airfield at War
Author: Bruce Barrymore Halpenny
Format: Hardcover
Condition: Good. Slight wear and fading to dust jacket

Beginning with a general description of a typical wartime bomber airfield, To Shatter The Sky 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 - as used so successfully in the BBC television film of the same title, to which 'Barry' Halpenny acted as consultant - 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.
