The True Story of Two Airmen at War Over Germany
They were the best of enemies – dedicated, skilled, deadly. In the treacherous night skies above wartime Germany, an RAF bomber from New Zealand and a Luftwaffe pilot hunt their targets, passing each other in the darkness.
Stephen Harris wanted to discover the truth about his great-uncle’s exploits during WWII; he never imagined it would lead to meeting the pilot from the other side. Under a Bomber’s Moon reaches across the divide of years and countries to tell the story of these two brave men, describing both the breathtaking clashes in the air and the camaraderie, patriotism and personal tragedies that became their war.

They were the best of enemies – dedicated, skilled and deadly. In the night skies above wartime Germany an RAF navigator-bomber from New Zealand and a Luftwaffe pilot seek out their targets, testing the gap between success and their own destruction as they cross each other’s paths. The odds are heavily against either of them making it through the war, but as this sobering realisation displaces their initial exuberant adventurism, both come to see in their youthful sacrifice the survival of all they hold dear. Under a Bomber’s Moon reaches across the divide of years, of geography, of nationality to tell their story largely in their own words – describing both the breathtaking clashes in the air and the camaraderie, humour, patriotism and personal tragedies that became their war.
