Best of Times Worst of Times tells the story of an Australian gunner and his pilot during their service with Bomber Command. Two very different men but with a single vocation: to put the Nazi war machine out of action. Each would describe themselves as ordinary men. For each, in their different ways, their wartime experience was extraordinary.
For Joe (the Australian Gunner) fate would bring the best of times. From Brisbane, he would cross the Atlantic on the Queen Elizabeth. He would find the woman to whom he would be married for the rest of his life. As a gunner on a Lancaster Bomber he would enjoy the camaraderie of a band of brothers on a wartime bomber station and high status among the wartime population.

For Tom (Lancaster pilot), fate decreed the worst of times. He would be thrown out of an exploding plane to survive; then be sentenced to death by the French resistance for being a Nazi stooge.  He would know the horror of betrayal by someone he trusted and thrown into the hands of the Nazi secret police. He would know abject fear of the living death within the Buchenwald concentration camp.  He would become one of very few people ever to leave it – and that in the most dramatic of circumstances.
