The gripping tale of the 20th century’s maximum fight within the modest voice of a Canadian teen within the RAF.In 1940, nineteen-year-old Howard Hewer dreamed of being the following Billy Bishop, of piloting Spitfires or Hurricanes over Europe. His dream used to be shattered while he was once chosen as an alternative for a profession as a instant operator in Bomber Command.But he acquired all of the experience he signed on for. Hewer and his crews of 218 and 148 Squadrons flew vital evening operations over Germany and North Africa, shedding their lethal payloads and dodging enemy flak.And he was once no longer constantly a lot more secure at the floor. He survived the Blitz in London, a U-boat assault within the South Atlantic, a fire-fight with Italian troops close to el-Alamien, in addition to chaste amorous affairs, fistfights, and beers with Boer rebels.Self-deprecating, bittersweet, and alive to either the horrors of warfare and the friendships and braveness of the boys and girls who struggle it, In for a Penny, In for a Pound is the unforgettable tale of a tender Canadian’s event of history’s maximum conflict.
