Brian Kingcome "A Willingness to Die" by Mark Robinson,
This review is from: A Willingness to Die: Memories from Fighter Command (Paperback)
Very interesting book. Different from many WW II fighter pilot tales in two ways:
(1) Kingcome does not concentrate on the individual actions/kills that earned him the fighter ace accolades (he is very modest on this subject). Instead he concentrates on the bigger picture of the war and serving his country.
(2) Kingcome wrote to book in later life not immediately after WW II. Consequently when he describes life in the RAF and the 1930's and 40's he is able to describe how different things were then to now - the details are themselves interesting.
I would recommend this book.
