I bought this book for my Dad who was in the Far East in the late 40's and worked on the Sunderlands. He has enjoyed the book very much and found it well written and informative. My Dad said that he was thrilled that i'd found a 'gem' of a book for him and he'll be reading it over many times. There are very few accounts of the Sunderland & crew in the Far East and he thoroughly enjoyed being reminded of places which he had visited & worked in. Overall, a clear and informative, well written book.
