George "Screwball" Beurling (a Canadian) was probably one of the best shots in Fighter command. An Individualist who did not always see eye to eye with RAF superiors, he made a name for himself in the defence of Malta with a large score of enemy aircraft shot down. This is his diary - his own words - and a fascinating read, giving his own view of aerial combat and a feel for life in the besieged Island of Malta. It begins with an entertaining account of his learning to fly and complicated attempts to join the air war. Strongly recommended for anyone interested in the WW2 Air war.
