Day Duties for the Night Workers - Robert Taylor - Bomber Command Ed


This print comes with a free matching numbered copy of the book Heroic Endeavour, signed by the author Sean Feast. 

The print: as the massive Lancaster looms majestically over them, the ever vigilant ground crew begin the task of preparing ‘their’ aircraft for the coming night’s operation. Checking, repairing and double-checking again, making sure that nothing goes wrong on the next trip, nothing that could endanger the lives of the crew who depend on them. It will be a race against time.

The book: Heroic Endeavour by Sean Feast tells the gripping and moving story of a dramatic Pathfinder Force raid on Cologne on 23rd December 1944 - a story that until now had been rather overlooked by military historians. The raid brought a Victoria Cross for its leader, Squadron Leader Robert Palmer DFC, but the book pays tribute to all the men of the RAF that fought and died on that fateful night.
'An outstanding exposition...truly compelling' - Group Captain Stafford Coulson DSO DFC.
