I found that the book doesn't seem to grab you and make feel as though your there with him as so many others do.
There appears to be a rushed feel about the book that makes you feel that the author was more interested in finishing the book rather than writing a captivating story about his life in bomber command.
All said, it does give you an insight into the role of bomber command during the war and the types of raids that the crews had to take part in.
If your after a book that really makes you feel as though your there with him, then this probably isn't the book for you.
if the book carried on half as much as the preface reaches out and wallops you, then this could have been fantastic. too much of a stiff upper lip to discribe what must have been quite frankly god awful gut wretching momments fear, thats why people like bob stanford tuck (fly for your life)were so successful in thier books and of course they had biographers to skillfully do it for them nevertheless a true son of england, god bless sir
