Moral Fibre by Helena P. Schrader


Moral Fibre

Riding the icy, moonlit sky—

They took the war to Hitler.

Their chances of survival were less than fifty percent.

Their average age was 21.

This is the story of just one bomber pilot, his crew, and the woman he loved.

It is intended as a tribute to them all.


Flying Officer Kit Moran has earned his pilot’s wings, but the greatest challenges still lie ahead: crewing up and returning to operations. Things aren’t made easier by the fact that while still a flight engineer, he was posted LMF (Lacking in Moral Fibre) for refusing to fly after a raid on Berlin that killed his best friend and skipper. Nor does it help that he is in love with his dead friend’s fiancĂ©, but she is not yet ready to become romantically involved again.

  1. Deirdra, sorry I'm so late posting my thanks! I was traveling back from Maine to Greece -- a three day odyssey during which I was incommunicado. The ordeal is over and I'm back in Greece. So I did want to thank you for featuring "Moral Fibre" on your blog. Hope you got lots of visitors.
