Narrated by Stephen Fry, Who Betrayed The Bomber Boys? is a brand new and exclusive documentary which honours the memory of the brave men who gave their lives during the ferocious bombing of Germany during World War II.
Until now, these men have largely been excluded from the history books, but this month’s unveiling of The Bomber Command Memorial in Green Park is bringing them back into the headlines once again.
Over 55,000 RAF Bomber Command men were lost and thousands more wounded or taken prisoner during World War II. But after the battles were over they were quickly shunned by their own political leaders who realised that history might judge the bombing of Germany harshly.
Despite being vital to the disruption of Hitler’s forces during the war, even PM Winston Churchill, a great enthusiast for the bombings, distanced himself from the campaign. Who Betrayed The Bomber Boys? and Stephen Fry reveal how the men were betrayed by their country and tells the true story of their achievements.
The fight to have the Bomber Command aircrews honoured in the way they deserve is a cause close to many people’s hearts. The late Robin Gibb was campaigning for many years to have a memorial erected in honour of these brave men and he features in the programme detailing why this is such an important memorial that is being built in Green Park.
