A training movie from WWII that shows how aircraft gunners were selected and trained in the U.S. to perform their duties. Particularly interesting are the devices used to simulate actual combat conditions.
Gunners - particularly those that worked on the bottom of the aircraft (the belly gunners) - were exposed to all sorts of dangers. Survival conditions for a belly gunner were, in fact, grim.
So, not surprisingly, in the later models of bombers during WWII (i.e. the B-29) men were repaced in those positions by machine guns fired by remote control from somewhat safer stations onboard.

Some relatively modern aircraft still use rear weapons, but today, all aspect missiles are used instead.
