Behind the Glory is a must-read for anyone interested in the Commonwealth Air Training Plan as seen through the eyes of those who served in it. That piece of Canadian history has now been given a human face, as this book recounts the memories of many who served in the plan. Their skill and dedication produced the trained air crew who ultimately won the air war over Europe. (Charlie Konvalinka, former national president of the Canadian Air Force Officers Association)
