    Flight-Lieutenant Jack Wetherby (1914-1943) was one of those Second World War senior RAF Bomber Command captains who had survived one tour of 30 operations and whose experience, skill, courage and example made a vital contribution to their squadron's life and operational success. This book traces his development from novice second pilot of a Wellington in the pioneering days of 1940 to senior captain of a Halifax in what Sir Arthur Harris called his 'Main Offensive'.
