Memoirs of a Fleet Air Arm pilot in WW2,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: On and Off the Flight Deck: Reflections of a Naval Fighter Pilot in World War II (Kindle Edition)
A vivid account of the experiences and emotions of one of the often forgotten heroes of the Fleet Air Arm, who flew obsolete aircraft in all weathers from heaving carrier decks, in an effort to protect the vital convoys that were Britain's lifeline and later took the war to the Japanese in more advanced American built fighters. Sometimes humourous and often touched by the loss of friends, this account mirrors the experience of many of the brave airmen who flew form ships during the war and the difficulties of coming to terms with the abrupt transition to peacetime. Thoroughly recommended to anyone with an interest in military aviation that goes beyond the Battle of Britain.
