Omschrijving

Until the Night is a novel of the Bombing War.When in September 1943 Adam Chantrey, a 25-year old veteran of the bombing war is sent to Ansham Wolds to rebuild a shattered Lancaster squadron, Bomber Command's greatest battle is only weeks away.Exhausted and tormented by his own demons he discovers, amidst the chaos of war and loss, love and an unlikely inner peace up on the High Wold of Lincolnshire while all around him the world is enveloped in madness.Bomber Command's hour of greatest trial - the Battle of Berlin - is approaching and its long dark shadow hangs over the young men who ride the heavies of the Main Force to Germany in the knowledge that a tour of bomber operations is a death sentence for two out of every three men.PLEASE BE AWARE - THIS IS THE COMPLETELY NEW (SECOND) EDITION OF A PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED BOOK OF THE SAME NAME.This (SECOND) edition respects the characterisation and narrative of the first edition but has been re-edited and re-presented in a modified format designed to be more user friendly to Kindle and other e-book publishing platforms.This edition is also available as the 'Until the Night Series' which breaks the book into five smaller unabridged sequential parts:, each of which is available as a separate book.Book 1: Main Force Country - September 1943Book 2: The Road to Berlin - October 1943Book 3: The Big City - November 1943Book 4: When Winter Comes - December 1943Book 5: After Midnight - January 1944All five books of the 'Until the Night Series' are available free to subscribers to Kindle Unlimited.In the winter of 1943-44, few aircrew would have foreseen the shabbiness of the treatment they would receive from successive post-war governments. Not for them the luxury of strategic hand-wringing, not for them the Byzantine complexities of the Grand Alliance against the Axis, literally, for them their fate was simply to do or to die. For the men who flew Bomber Command's heavies to Germany, the winter of 1943-44 was both their darkest, and their finest hour.So, remember the 600,000 Germans (probably many more, we shall never know) killed in the bombing. Remember the 60,000 plus killed in Britain by the Luftwaffe and by Hitler's V-weapons. Remember that between June 1940 and June 1944, Bomber Command was the only major British - and Dominion - offensive force continually carrying the war to the Nazis. Remember, remember, remember that the greatest evil of war is the dreadful things that one's enemies make us do to prevail.Until the Night - lest our leaders forget...
