3.0 out of 5 stars Good read, but slow start.
Overall this is worth a read, but it is very third person for the first 40% of the book (understandably as it's put together from Saville's logbooks). However, it does read very much as if you are reading his logbook, with little meat to fill in the detail at times.

There is no doubt that Saville was an excellent aviator, but this book was a little too much...

What an Oddyssey a triumph this book is a salute to an accomplished airman who could have avoided his fate and had it easy during wartime. Instead he volunteered for Bomber Command and flew countless missions all over the Europe and North Africa leading the recruits who needed his kind of guidance and inspiration to keep going to the wars end.

This review is from: Bomber Commander: Don Saville DSO, DFC - 'The Mad Australian: Don Saville DSO, DFC - "The Mad Australian" (Kindle Edition)
A comprehensive, detailed and well written biography of an extraordinary man. Written by somebody who knew and served with him it gives an insight into many aspects of the early 20th Century, sadly culminating in Don Saville's death over Hamburg in July 1943.

An excellent read about one of the many fantastic heros in Bomber Command. These guys were something else, their courage night after night is just awe inspiring. Don was no exception! His family must be very proud.

Different to the normal RAF way of writing an account of events. Fantastic characters with rather unusual entrance into the service.
