"And Some Fell on Stony Ground" is a short story by Leslie Mann, published in association with the Imperial War Museums. A rear gunner in the RAF, he was shot down in Whitley Bomber in a raid over Dusseldorf on June 20, 1941.
After the war, in addition to working for Pathe News and as an international war correspondent, he chronicled his experiences as an RAF "Bomber Boy" in a fictional narrative.
Award-winning historian Richard Overy provides a detailed introduction. The "Guardian"'s Richard J. Evans described his book, "The Bombers and the Bombed," as "the most important book published on the history of the second world war this century.""
