Not only is the book a good read, but it is also full of interesting stuff. I didn't realise the importance of meteorology to the success of both the RAF and the Americans during the war until I read this book and I didn't realise the fantastic job they carried out flying in all weathers whenever called upon. The author survived some fairly monumental crashes and these are illustrated with photographs taken of the wrecks. One of them occurred whilst flying a Gloster Gladiator in thick fog and his description of the incident is both amusing and exciting.
Denys Braithwaite was a real hero and a thoroughly nice chap. The story of his rise through the ranks is enthralling and I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone.
