As a boy, Mick Manning listened to his father's hair-raising tales about life as an RAF airgunner during the Second World War. Now, years later, he has carefully recreated his father's stories, writing them down as if his dad was speaking the words. In collaboration with Brita, he has illustrated them too. It's for Charlie's grandchildren ? and for everyone. Find out what it was really like to: Put up with food rationing ? Undergo RAF Training? Take off in a bomber? Face enemy fighters? Survive the Battle of the Bulge
