Night Madness by Richard R. Pyves

  • Over 30 harrowing missions over the skies of war torn Europe
  • The bombing of Dresden
  • A man haunted by memories of the war
  • And thirty years later, his wife’s courageous fight to get a Widows Disability Pension due to her late husband’s Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

This is the true story of Ron Pyves — a teenage tail-gunner during WWII — and the fight for his life during and after the war.

Based on interviews, painstaking archival research, and a long- distance love affair captured in daily correspondence, Richard R. Pyves weaves together his father’s tale into a touching love story and one man’s very personal war.

“Night Madness captures the spirit of the times — the youthful bravado and honest fear of the aircrew as they fly on their combat missions to bring the war to Germany. Richard Pyves has also brought a love story to light in a beautiful tale of devotion, hope, and courage.”- Patricia Burns, author of They Were So Young
“I’m a history buff and to me reading this book was as exciting as watching ‘Pearl Harbour.’” -Justine Lewkowicz, Justine’s Bookends, NewsTalk 1010
