You may be sat looking at this and thinking that this book will be very technical and that it won't be a very good read, however, i can tell you that it is. Yes there is a little background to the plane, but that was to be expected. However, when it comes to the actual crash, the detail the book goes into, it seems as if you are actually in the plane experiencing the same, it really paints a picture of what our RAF crews have gone through over the past decade. Another good point about the book is that it does cover German air crashes, i know we were fighting them, however, their crews do still need to be remembered. Overall, a very good read, and well worth it. As usual i expect the amazon delivery will be prompt, as it always is.
