Product Description:

Barbara Harper-Nelson was once the nineteen-year-old girlfriend living in Liverpool of twenty-two-year-old French airman Francis Usai who was in the RAF Bomber Command. Amazingly she kept the letters (over 2000 pages of correspondence) from this witty and amusing young French airman exiled from his conquered country and based near York from where he undertook nightly missions into the horrendous firestorm that was the Battle of the Ruhr. Along with her own diaries these letters constitute a unique evocative often amusing conversation between young people during a time unprecedented in history and with the daily threat of permanent separation plus the very regular loss of close friends - 50 per cent of all air crews were killed. The intensity of their love story and the quality of their courage catch at the heart.
