Kicked out of 29 squadron by Guy Gibson, the inimitable team of Harry White and Michael Allen were forced to learn their trade as a ferry crew delivering aircraft to operational squadrons abroad. Itching for combat they were finally transferred to 141 squadron, then under the command of the one and only John Braham, where they went on to notch up a very respectable score and receive DFC's with 2 bars. The story though, starts pre-war and ends, quite sadly, post-war and demob. Michael Allen was an AI operator and together with his trusty pilot flew many Serrate intruder missions, first in Beaufighters and then Mosquitoes deep into Germany in search of their opposite numbers. They also went on to carry out low level attacks on German airfields using cannons and napalm. All fascinating stuff.
If you've got as far as reading this review then buy the book, you won't regret it. I for one will be placing it in the book shelf with the rest of my favourite reads.
