5.0 out of 5 stars An open and accessible story of real life hard work., 17 Mar 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Pursuit Through Darkened Skies: An Ace Night-fighter Crew in World War II (Hardcover)
I am the author's youngest son and was the first of his children to read the book - not to mention anyone else!My father wrote on his typewriter but the publisher needed it as a computer document for editing. I was priviledged to be able to do this conversion for him. When I started, I had no idea what I would find - but I found more than I had could have imagined. My father writes openly, directly and with candour. Some stories I had heard as a child but it was interesting to read them for the first time. Countless others were new to me. Although I had heard of many of the events in which he was involved, it was fascinating to discover their proper chronology and follow my father through his journey. His criticism of some aspects of war strategy are not written with hindsight but were fearsome truths known at the time. It isn't possible for us that were not in the war to know how it was. But my father found a way to tell us about some of the success and the humour. Some of the failure and the fear. For those that experienced war inside the RAF, perhaps this book tells a little of their story too. For his children, it is a document to be treasured.
