The author has had a lifelong interest in the aircraft and airmen who fought in WW2. In this book he sets out to find the last Australian aircrew/pilots who served during World War II. These men have never had much written about them or their exploits during the war.

It was another time, John Crago a wireless operator air gunner with
622 Squadron said: "you always think of it, it never goes away, it's always there somewhere at the back of your mind, but you just get on with things", Murray Adams a fighter pilot who flew the famous Spitfire cited; "it's only now that fighter pilots like me are becoming an endangered species, that people like you are interested."
