Touch and Go by Stephen Brown features Lancaster stragglers from 83 Squadron returning over the North Sea in the summer of 1943. Their mission has taken them deep into enemy territory; having to run a gauntlet of night fighters and flak in both directions. Many are damaged, low on fuel and carrying wounded crew members; some will not make it to their base at RAF Wyton and will put down instead at the nearest possible airfield, probably Woodbridge or Coltishall.
