The exact same nightmare of how his plane would be shot down repeated in detail every night for a month until the day it happened… to another plane which was moved into his spot in the formation at the last minute. By knowing how that plane would fall, LTC Roadman was able to avoid being hit and live on to discover just how true that nightmare became! A Combat Nightmare in WWII contains an in-depth history of aerial bombing and takes you on the journey of a young boy from the moonshiner's backwoods of Tennessee who would eventually fly 35 missions in one of the most famous aircraft of World War II.

The RAF's Air Sea Rescue Service saved thousands of

some of its most dramatic missions in northwest Europe,
the Mediterranean and the Far East. Those shot down at sea faced terrifying dangers, from weather extremes to enemy
fighters, and rescue by airborne or seaborne craft was
fraught with difficulty. These incredible stories celebrate the courage, persistence and ingenuity of the men who found
themselves 'in the drink' and those who saved them.
