A review for 'Night after Night', by Reviewed on Netgalley June 2022
An outstanding book about a Bomber Command pilot, William (Bill) Meyer, and his crew members during the Battle of the Ruhr in WW2. The author has clearly put a lot of effort into researching the histories of the main character and the men that he flew with, on his terrifying operations into Germany and occupied Europe.
I have a massive amount of empathy for the bomber crews, my Father served as a Wireless Operator in a Lancaster during the same campaigns as Bill. He only just survived his designated tour, after many near fatal operations, which I discovered in his log book. Like most veterans, he hardly ever spoke about his missions, but his stories of the RAF selection process and life off-duty totally aligned with the author’s descriptions.
Luella Langevad, the author, is a skilled, passionate, writer who fully understands the bravery of these extraordinary airmen who risked their lives on a nightly basis. She puts a human sensitive touch into her descriptions of the crews.
I wont reveal Bill's secret, because it my spoil the plot!
A review for 'Night after Night', by Ron BWhat a riveting account of what the RAF Bomber personnel endured during the war. The horrors and terrible conditions they were able to overcome was inspirational. A great account that should be read by all.
