1.0 out of 5 stars Story of sailor Malan?? Not really!!, 13 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sky Tiger: The Story of Sailor Malan (Paperback)
What a let down. This book is not a biography of one of the most iconic fighter pilots of the second world war it is just a long list of 74 squadron ORB's followed by the Biggin Hill Wings ORB's. Very little of the books contents are by Sailor, it tells you little of the man, how he felt or fought or developed as a fighting man. It glosses over the Battle of Barking Creak where Sailor let Freebourne take the blame. It is sooo boring, I was so looking forward to reading it and finding out about the man who helped develop fighter tactics but it contains nothing of interest, a real let down.

If you, like me collect and read books by pilots from this era do not buy this one, it is a con and trades on the man's name and reputation. If you are starting to read books of this nature buy Al Deere's Nine Lives or Wing Leader by Johnnie Johnson, you'll not be dissapointed.
