Re: Why sons and daughters do not write about their fathers (WW2 biographies)

When our fathers were alive, they were just normal " Daddy" in the RAF. It is only now in our maturity that we realise their tales were in fact heroic. We cared for their damaged bodies and minds - until we were too worn out for the luxury of writing. Those of us who have manuscripts that just need tidying up - let them be seem by people who might help - and then find our stories repeated, unattributed , by prolific authors. Still, we were raised to expect injustice after the way our government treated the survivors of Bomber Command.
