Ghosts of Targets Past

Born in Scotland, Philip Gray is now a journalist living in Canada, but in WW2 he found himself captain of the crew of a 'mighty Lanc', operating with 186 Squadron as the RAF took the war right into the heart of Germany. Both Gray and his crew felt they were in charge of the undisputed king of the skies, but danger lurked around every corner and on every mission. In an engaging yet frank style, Gray reveals the true relationships between himself and his team, and between the team members themselves. He also searches his own soul as he struggles to survive in love and war.
