And Some Fell on Stony Ground : A Day in the Life of an RAF Bomber Pilot
And Some Fell on Stony Ground is a short story by Leslie Mann, published in association with the Imperial War Museums. A rear gunner in the RAF, he was shot down in Whitley Bomber in a raid over Düsseldorf on June 20, 1941.
After the war, in addition to working for Pathé News and as an international war correspondent, he chronicled his experiences as an RAF "Bomber Boy" in a fictional narrative.
Award-winning historian Richard Overy provides a detailed introduction. The Guardian's Richard J. Evans described his book, The Bombers and the Bombed, as "the most important book published on the history of the second world war this century."
