The gripping story of two airmen in World War Two – one in the RAF, the other in the Luftwaffe.

They were the best of enemies – dedicated, skilled and deadly.  In the night skies above wartime Germany an RAF navigator-bomb aimer from New Zealand and Luftwaffe pilot seek out their targets, testing the gap between success and their own destruction as they cross each other’s paths.  The odds are heavily against either of them making it through the war, but as this sobering realisation displaces their initial exuberant sense of adventure, both come to see in their youthful sacrifice the survival of all they hold dear.

‘Under a Bomber’s Moon’ reaches across the divide of years, of geography, of nationality, to tell their story largely in their own words – describing both the breathtaking clashes in the air and the camaraderie, humour, patriotism and personal tragedies that became their war.
