Book Launch Of ‘Ireland’s Aviator Heroes Of World War II’ By John C. Hewitt

19/04/16 @ 2:30 pm.4:30 pm

On April 19th, John C. Hewitt will launch his landmark collection Ireland’s Aviator Heroes Volume 2. Having spent 40 years meeting and interviewing the Irish airmen who flew with the RAF during the Second World War, this beautiful collection is a piece of history.

John has painstakingly and extensively researched individual stories through interviews with the surviving subjects and their families and using the original log books and service records of the men. Many of the stories contain details of the individuals’ participation in important wartime campaigns, although others are limited to war service records due to a lack of surviving information. Above all this book celebrates the great courage and sacrifice demonstrated by these Irishmen during their contribution to the Allied war effort against Nazi Germany, her western allies and Japan. Many of the men included paid the ultimate price for their participation. The book is illustrated with many photographs, some taken by the subjects themselves.

Join John to launch this superb collection on Tuesday 19th April, 2.30 to 4.30pm.

This will be in bookshops, or you can also preorder your copy online here:
