Item description for FIRE BY NIGHT: The Dramatic Story of One Pathfinder Crew and Black Thursday,16/17 December 1943 by Jennie Gray...

Now available in paperback.

When she was very young, the author was captivated by the story her father, Joe Mack, repeatedly told her about his astonishing rescue from a crashed and burning Lancaster one night in 1943. As an adult she decided to find out what happened to his aircraft and the countless others returning from operations that same dreadful night...She writes from the heart, honestly and at times lyrically and her thorough research uncovers the harsh realities of warfare, the failure of procedures and, worst of all, her father's shocking secret.

Reviews - What do customers think about FIRE BY NIGHT: The Dramatic Story of One Pathfinder Crew and Black Thursday,16/17 December 1943?

Fire By Night  Jul 25, 2006
I read this book hoping it would give me an insight into what it must have been like for my father who was an airgunner in Bomber Command during WW2. Whilst he completed some 49 missions and survived the war he must have shared some of the experiences written about in this book. As with most aircrew, little if anything was forthcoming from my father about what he saw during that time. It must have been as harrowing for him to live with the experience as it was for the author to pursue her quest. The latter part of the book is very moving and heartwrenching. The final outcome came as a relief after an emotional read. An excellent read.
 
Every "baby-boomer should be required to read this book.  Jun 21, 2001
A harrowing tale of your parent's generation, and how they lived, fought, and died to win WWII. The true story of the author's father, the sole survivor of a Pathfinder crew of seven flying a Berlin raid in a Lancaster bomber, and his experiences leading up to and following Black Thursday, December 16/17, 1943. Exquisitely researched and related, this may be the closest many of us will get to understanding the meaning of sacrifice.
