A good read, but not really what I had hoped from the description
on 5 June 2013
This book is fundamentally the author's autobiography, telling the story of his service career. The blurb on Amazon makes mention of his serving in a Tornado squadron in Germany during the height of the Cold War, which was what I was interested in reading about - however, this takes up barely a couple of chapters of the book. Far more is given over to his time spent flying reconnaissance Canberras, and even more to his staff jobs once promoted to a desk role.
As an overall story of a service career, it's an interesting enough read, but doesn't really live up to the promise of the title or description.
