A good read, but all too short, 16 Sept. 2012
This was an intriguing read and you have to keep reminding yourself that Lane wrote this as the war raged. He is quite matter of fact and events are fast moving. It would have been nice to know a little more of the man and his feelings. Surprisingly, he writes of the excitement and longing to go up to find enemy planes to do battle with and the disappointment when none are spotted. Dilip Sarkar has done well in filling in lost information and thus making it easier reading.
A nice little insight into Spitfire flying, but the end (of the book) came all too soon.
Geoffrey Wellam's First Light however, is still I believe, the best account of the spitfire fighter pilot.
