Description

Through Dan Patterson's remarkable photography, we get to see, close up, the cramped, cold, exposed turrets that so many young men fought and died in. Veterans describe in spirited detail what it was like to fly and fight in the war's most renowned aircraft. Gunner reveals not just the turrets of such famous aircraft as the Lancaster and the B-17, but also the rarely seen gun positions of aircraft such as the Me 410, the Italian S.M. 79 and the Russian Il-2 Shturmovik. This book allows us to imagine what it must have been like to be an air gunner in the Second World War.
