We Together: 451 and 453 Squadrons at War

We Together: 451 and 453 Squadrons at War

This is the history of a group of men who were bonded by war and their love of flying. 451 and 453 (RAAF) Squadrons were both formed in 1941 and would both fly and fight until the end of the Second World War. While 451 was sent to North Africa and equipped with Hurricanes, 453 was deployed to Singapore, flying Brewster Buffalos against the Japanese. Later they would both join the war in Europe, flying sorties together against V2 sites and dive-bombing targets ahead of the Allied advance. There are moments of excitement, pain, suffering, fear, boredom and laughter. This book is not just the history according to the official record, but is the history informed by all available sources. Foreword by Air Vice-Marshal Steve ‘Zed’ Roberton, DSC, AM.
