One midsummer night in 1944 an Australian fighter pilot passed a flying bomb that was heading for an English town. He edged his fighter in until he got his wing tip beneath the V1’s wing, tipped it a little and pulled away. His second attempt at this was successful and the bomb crashed harmlessly away from the town. This is just one of the many stories recounted in this book about Australia’s part in the Allied air onslaught on Fortress Europe. Uncommon.
