Written by Wayne Ralph.
Published by John Wiley Sons & Canada, Ltd., 2005.
|Aces, Warriors and
Wingmen is a pictorial memoir and oral history of Canadas fighter
pilots tour of duty.
In this special and in some ways profound book, veterans, their children and grandchildren will relive combat experience as they meet more than 100 pilots and aircrew who flew during the Second World War. From the authors candid and revealing interviews with the pilots, and information contained in their logbooks, diaries and letters home, the reader will be escorted into the world of combat, from training in Canada and England, to engaging the enemy over Malta, northern Africa, Europe and Southeast Asia.
Through meticulous research, memorabilia and photographs, author Wayne Ralph presents readers with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sense what war was really like through the eyes of those who engaged the enemy. The veterans who were interviewed for the book, like all their brothers in arms, came from farms, villages and cities all across Canada, and many were decorated for courage and gallantry in battle. Hear their words and join these young Canadians in combat.
