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.

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.
