Bomber Boys

The extraordinary adventures of a group of airmen who escaped the advancing Japanese army and became the RAAF’s celebrated 18th Squadron. “In March 1942, Java was about to fall. An Australian dispatch rider and a Dutch air force pilot embark on a frightening escape from advancing Japanese troops that take them from Bandung to a crash landing north of Darwin – going on to join a unique band of flyers to strike back at the enemy. 100 Dutchmen stranded in Australia, unable to return to their homeland were joined by an Australian contingent to create RAAF No. 18 Squadron.” Firstly, undertaking operations of coastal patrols, the team was then based in the Northern Territory to carry out over 900 bombing raids, missions and attacks of Japanese ships to push the enemy back throughout three years. The book also tells of the men behind the defence team united in common purpose and the friendships they formed in difficult times.
