INDEX

“Hillier brings to life the stories of those responsible for delivering planes from North American manufacturers to war-torn Europe. Without the dedication, sacrifice, and skills of the personnel of RAF Ferry Command the war might have taken a more sinister turn. Hillier does a masterful job of shining a light on the people and the achievements of this long-overlooked organization.”
