Book Description

15 Dec 2010
Spitfire Pilot was written in 1940 in the heat of battle when the RAF stood alone against the might of Hitler's Third Reich. It is a tremendous personal account of one of the fiercest and most idealised air conflicts - the Battle of Britain - seen through the eyes of a pilot of the famous 609 Squadron, which shot down over 100 planes in that epic contest.Often hopelessly outnumbered, in their state-of-the-art Spitfires, Crook and his colleagues committed acts of unimaginable bravery against the Messerschmidts and Junkers. Many did not make it and the author describes the void they leave in the squadron with great poignancy.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the few 17 Jun 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is a very well written diary of events in the life of David Crook DFC, a Spitfire pilot during WW2. It is very easy to read and gives a very true to life description of what it was like to fly a Spitfire during this time. A very enjoyable read and recommended for anyone who is interested in WW2 flying stories.
