Book Launch: Failed to Return • Keith C. Ogilvie

November 16, 2021 - 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Join Keith C. Ogilvie & special guests for the online launch of Failed to Return: Canada’s Bomber Command Sacrifice in the Second World War.

Keith C. Ogilvie, editor and contributor, will host the launch with several special guests, making this an interesting and memorable backdrop to the launch of the book. Keith will be joined by UK author, publisher and contributor to Failed to Return, Steve Darlow, as well as Kevin Windsor, Director of the National Air Force Museum in Trenton, Ontario. Additional guests to be confirmed.

Hear Keith and Steve discuss the idea behind the stories presented in Failed to Return —the importance of remembering the many airmen who failed to return from their dangerous and often fatal assignments with Royal Air Force Bomber Command.

The National Air Force Museum plays a special role through its own mandate to preserve the history of the RCAF, its contribution to this conflict and the memories of the men like those whose personal sacrifices are set out in these stories.

At its core, Failed to Return: Canada’s Bomber Command Sacrifice in the Second World War presents these individual accounts as an illumination of, and memorial to, the unique lives that lay behind the dreadful statistics.
