5.0 out of 5 stars Winged Victory, 9 Jun. 2009
This review is from: Winged Victory (Hardcover)
This book should be required reading, even in schools. It is a wonderful, cynical and bitter comment on war, the fear felt by the pilots, war profiteers etc. My old flying instructor (80 in 1968) flew in Camels in WW1 and knew V M Yates ("Tom Cundall" in the novel)and was in no doubt that the book is based accurately on Yates's own experiences. Readers should also read teh classic masterpiece "Sagittarius Rising" by Cecil Lewis, also a WW1 pilot. The books are remarkably similar in attitude
