A Grave Too Far Away illuminates the story of the men of (RAF)Royal Air Force Bomber Command Europe 1939-1945 who answered the call of their nation to defend the Mother Country in World War II.

A Grave Too Far Away describes the highs and lows of their training and military service through letters, interviews and remembered stories. The demands of the bombing campaign on men and aircraft were enormous and the horrors of war deeply felt by the youthful Australians ordered to carry out operations. After WWII these young men would face derision and would fight their own demons but their service and sacrifice would continue to reverberate for generations around the globe. Their loss and legacy will endure for generations.
