5.0 out of 5 stars A real hero, 28 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Warburton's War: The Life of Maverick Ace Adrian Warburton, DSO, DFC, DFC (USA) (Paperback)
Adrian Warburton's story reads like fiction. He was a WWII trouble maker who lacked discipline, kept crashing his aircraft and was sent to Malta more or less as a punishment. There he became the top photo reconnaissance pilot of all time, and along the way almost as an aside shot down enough enemy planes to qualify as an official ace. Where other photo recce people would fly once over a target quickly to get their pictures, he would fly over once at low level to get his bearings and then, when all the defences below were alert, he'd fly back again taking his pictures. Bits of his story have appeared in several books and films in fictionalised form. Time somebody did the job properly with a biopic.
