Friendly Fire

By Richard Bickers

The phrase ‘friendly fire’ is used to describe the accidental shooting of servicemen by their own side. In this historical survey of some of the most dramatic incidents of what he terms ‘accidental amicide’, Richard Bickers posits that this type of often fatal accident is an occurrence as old as warfare itself. In this absorbing book, Bickers puts ‘friendly fire’ into true perspective, drawing from his experience as an airman during and after WWII, to demonstrate how hard it is for a pilot to distinguish friend from foe.
