Item description for GHOSTS OF TARGETS PAST: The Lives and Losses of a Lancaster Crew in 1944-45 by Philip Gray & E. J. Coulter...
Born in Scotland, Philip Gray is now a journalist living in Canada, but in WW2 he found himself captain of the crew of a 'mighty Lanc', operating with 186 Squadron as the RAF took the war right into the heart of Germany. Both Gray and his crew felt they were in charge of the undisputed king of the skies, but danger lurked around every corner and on every mission.
In an engaging yet frank style, Gray reveals the true relationships between himself and his team, and between the team members themselves. He also searches his own soul as he struggles to survive in love and war.

I would recommend this to anyone Jul 21, 2003
Although I have not actually had a chance yet to fully finish reading this great book, I would like to say that I have met Philip Gray personally at the Toronto Aerospace Museum on the Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Downsview.
Having talked to Philip several times, I can say that he remains very sharp minded, and can tell you all kinds of interesting stories from his colorful life.
It's very rare to meet someone who has such excellent recall of times nearly 60 years in the past.
If you're ever in Toronto, you should drop by the museum, and get to see the restoration (in progress) of a Lancaster bomber. Philip is around quite often to give you a personal tour.
