1st Edition 2014, PB. Written by David Pasley.
In September 1944, around 1,300 men piloted military gliders from England to the Netherlands
as part of Operation Market Garden. Among them was Sgt Johnny Wetherall, a 19 year old Glider
Pilot from Oxford. During the battle which ensued Johnny was wounded and captured,
taking him on a journey across war torn Europe. This true story follows his time training as a Glider Pilot, fighting in the Battle of Arnhem,
lingering in prisoner of war camps and his eventual, unconventional journey home to England.
It has been pieced together using letters and accounts from Johnny and fellow pilots
from his Squadron, and is combined with an overview of wider events of the time
to tell the real story of what these men went through.
