Very Good book on the experiences of a WW2 Swordfish pilot,
This review is from: I Sank The Bismarck (Hardcover)
I have heard John Moffat describe his attack on the Bismarck, he has a remarkable memory for a man of his age. A very good account of his life as a WW2 Fleet Air Arm pilot. Mike Rossiter writes with authority, this is a follow on from his book HMS Ark Royal. Both books are recommend buys for Naval Aviation historians.

RODNEY PATTISSON says:
Moffat version of how he attacked the Bismarck explains why he was the rookie pilot on Ark Royal and why he secured no hit. The Observor could only, with difficulty, communicate with the pilot down a voice pipe, and with no view ahead and absolutely no instruments. The fatal shot was fired at her starboard side. Proof can be seen on U-tube Expedition Bismarck Part 5.
