First published in 1943, Tail Gunner is the absorbing story of one man's involvement in RAF Bomber Command's fledgling offensive between August 1940 and December 1941. It is unique among wartime memoirs, for it was written within months of the events described, and with all the immediacy of the memories of someone who was in the very thick of the action.

The author gives graphic descriptions of his experiences on night bombing attacks against heavily defenced enemy targets like Duisberg, Dusseldorf and Essen, and related a dramatic shoot-out with German fighters over LaRochelle in broad daylight durng July 1941.
