Product Description

From the Author

WWII autobiographical stories of a RAF pilot
These autobiographical stories begin with a boy leaving school and joining the Royal Air Force, followed by his WWII experiences as he moves along the line from AC2 to Flight Lieutenant. Through his eyes we see a pilot's war and experience what is was like to fly Wellington and Dakota aircraft in their respective roles. We share his mid-air collision in Canada. We are with him putting a Wellington into a potato field at night then, on one engine, landing in a mine field in the Sahara desert. We fly with him in India's monsoon, bombing Madalay's marshalling yard and supply dropping over Burma's jungle. We see him being arrested in Shepherds Hotel in Cairo and, later, disarming and frog-marching a Russian officer in Berlin. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

What an absolutely brilliant read.Not one of those me me me me autobiographies but one that encompasses all that happened to those we owe so much to.
At time I felt I was with Leicester and others glad I wasn't.
Thanks to Anthony Leicester for taking the time to put his experiences in writing.

Format: Paperback
One helluva book. Fascnating and absorbing story of the tough WWII years, told by an RAF pilot of Lancasters and Dakotas who served at home, in North Africa, in India, in Europe. Tony Leicester was in the thick of it, and tells his story with humor and a fine feel for his men and his planes. Read it--and YOU ARE THERE.

Yes, literally, I couldn't put Antony Leicester's book down once started. I too was RAF during WWII and deeply appreciate all he brings out about our experiences. Leicester puts in eloquent words exactly how I feel--and felt. Unbelievably accurate and true.

Disappointing read... I have read many memoirs on all sorts of different aspects of WW2 from spitfire pilots to U boat commanders and this was poor. There is no real description of what it must have been like to fly bombers in the 1940's... the only real danger seems to have come from his or other people's flying.... you almost forget that he was actually in a war. Give it a miss and try something else.
