This is an account of the New Zealanders who served as pilots, navigators, gunners, wireless operators, bomb aimers and ground staff from so many far flung airfields and ships in the Second World War. The book is largely about men, because that is the way it was: women were confined to support roles. Today their ranks are rapidly thinning and this is a tribute to their greatness.

Some 67,000 New Zealanders served in the Royal New Zealand Air force, the Royal Air Force and the Royal NavyÆs Air Branch û better known as the Fleet Air Arm. Of the 11,625 New Zealanders killed, 4149 were air force casualties.
