5.0 out of 5 stars A CANDID AND MOVING ACCOUNT, 15 Feb 2003
This review is from: Out of the Italian Night: Wellington Bomber Operations 1944-45 (Airlife's Classics) (Paperback)
OUT OF THE ITALIAN SKIES tells the story of a young ,newly married RAF pilot, sent to Italy to fly with 205 Group .After the 8th Army had liberated the airfields on the Foggia Plain the Wellingtons of 205 Group started to operate from them (January 1944)against Italian and Balkan targets.In Italy weather, icing and navigation ads (almost non-existent) were the main enemy, along with German FlaK. The storyline is unique and makes a refreshing change from other accounts of the air war in W.W.2.Besides the adventure, I did enjoy the touches of humour and romance running through it.Maurice Lihou, who passed away several months ago, has been able to combine an historical record of events (thanks to the precious help of Roy Conyers Nesbit) in a very human and personal manner, with a compelling account that had to be told.I have read it twice already and will probably read it again.A must for military historians and enthusiasts.
