There have been many factual accounts of the bombing of Germany, yet the myths that surround it still remain. Lost in the Flames brings to life the experiences of an RAF Bomber Command airman and his family within the story of a love that endures for 70 years. It is also a story of great courage and betrayal, exposing the personal dilemmas and moral controversies that have swirled around the Bomber Command crews and their families from WW2 to the present day. Summer 2012 finally sees the unveiling of an official memorial to Bomber Command that has been 70 years in coming, making this a very timely novel. 'The war must be finished. They must do their bit ...' Rural England, the 1930s. Jacob grows up dreaming of being a pilot. Rose grows up dreaming of being with Jacob. But by 1940 the country is on its knees and annihilation looms. The war - and RAF Bomber Command - steals Jacob away. Jacob and his crew are thrown together in the bitter struggle in the night skies over Germany. They can expect to survive for only six weeks, but somehow they survive six months. Sixty percent of those who joined up when they did are already dead, but they start a second tour all the same - the war must be finished and they must do their bit. And all the while, Rose - the reason Jacob has to get through this war - must wait to see what is left of him for her to spend a life with when it's all over. Can Jacob and his crew survive? And how will the nation remember them - as heroes or war criminals or something in between?
