About Heroes All:

For years, Steve Bond has been interviewing and recording veterans from all sides of the conflict, including air and ground crew. His aim was to transmit their engaging stories faithfully to a wider public. He spoke to British and German, German and Russian, British and Italian, American and German, who all shared the same piece of sky at the same time, in a sense, re-uniting them, sometimes also literally. This is not a book about the rights and wrongs of war, nor the strategies of the military commanders. It is about the experiences and feelings of those in the front line charged with delivery of said strategy. It deals with the sharp end of key campaigns, but also the less ‘glamorous’ sides of service life – selection, training, aircraft ferrying, etc. This is all original material and the stories of the veterans selected (some of them household names) are not edited but put in context by Bond, with overviews and annotations.
