3.0 out of 5 stars Flight of the rusty bucket, 18 Jun 2014

This is not so much a small book, more a long story. It is well written, and would be acceptable to readers of this genre.


Bailout Over Normandy: A Flyboy's Adventures with the French Resistance and Other Escapades in Occupied France
Bailout Over Normandy: A Flyboy's Adventures with the French Resistance and Other Escapades in Occupied France
Price: 5.40

4.0 out of 5 stars The story of a downed yank fighter pilot, 7 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am sure that this can be classified as non-fiction, but I think the author has drawn on actual stories to create the narrative. The story is of an American fighter pilot shot down over the D-Day beaches. It takes some believing the amounts of alcohol & tobacco consumed & still walk such long distances with the accuracy of a homing pigeon.

An interesting account of what was the development of an Irish Battle of Britain fighter ace. The author was clearly a very brave man, and I found his relaxed flowing prose easy reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good ideas gone wrong., 28 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting insight into aeronautical developments which did not quite cut the mustard. Some of the aircraft featured in this book should have scrapped before leaving the drawing board.

This review is from: MONOPOLY (App)
A popular board game reproduced on app platform. I hope the players of today get the pleasure that I had when I used to play it in the 1960's and. 70's.

A very good teaching aid for the novice & an aide memoire for the experienced photographer. You stand a better chance of getting a good photograph rather than a mediocre snap if you follow the guidance of this app.
