The Incredible Untold World War II Story of Australian Hero Barney Greatres - from Bomber Command to French Resistance Figher.  A school and university cadet in Sydney, Barney Greatres signed up for RAF Bomber Command in 1941, eager to get straight into the very centre of the Allied counterattack.  Bombing Germany night after night, Barney's 61 Squadron faced continual enemy fighter attacks and ant-aircraft fire - death or capture by the Nazis loomed large.  Very few suvived more than 20 missions, and it was on his 20th mission, in 1944, that Barney's luck finally ran out:  he was shot down over occupied France.  But his war was far from over.
