Seconds after the bombs had been released, Dog was hit. David was wounded in five places by flying metal. His right knee, thigh and shoulder were injured. The tendons and artery in his right hand were severed. And shrapnel ripped though his thick leather helmet, fracturing his skull. The aircraft went into a dive. David's boyhood dreams of flying led him to England for months of training and preparation as a bomber pilot. But his final flight was a nightmare. Author Christobel Mattingley tells her husband's gripping story with remarkable restraint and compassion. Max Fatchen writes: 'This book is about the quality of courage. It tells the story of the life and times of a young RAF pilot and how the growth of character and a sense of regard for other people contributed to the strength of purpose and mission that enabled him although injured to fly a damaged Lancaster bomber back to base in World War II when all the odds seemed against him and his crew.
