The life stories from childhood to old age, as told to and interpreted by author Wayne Ralph, of Canada`s fighter pilots in the Second World War, with historical and contemporary photography.

Wayne Ralph, author, photographer

These are the stories that flyers only told each other, until now. The candid revelations of men at the end of life about the meaning of aerial combat and its influence on their post-war lives. A retelling of the sad, foolish, and transcendent experiences that defined and marked a generation. Photos of childhood and wartime accompanied by portraits by the author.

I broke as fast as I could, but he put forty rounds of 13mm cannon shells into us. I had pistons blown out of one engine and the constant speed unit blown out in the other. We were going to bail out, but they could not have rescued we brought that aircraft back to Bradwell Bay and I can tell you it never flew again...I could see the engines running red hot; one was actually running on molten metal...the whole thing glowing navigator was wounded, bleeding from the face
