Customer Review

on 23 September 2010
This is a very readable book, written in an engaging style by Geoffrey Higgs, who has an interesting story to tell; from training with the Fleet Air Arm during the final months of WWII, to the transition to jets and into the era of supersonic military aircraft, taking in much of the world in the process. The book is well illustrated with (presumably) the author's own photographs, which are suitably captioned and add depth and a human face to many elements of his career.

In the preface, Mr Higgs states that he initially started writing this book as simply something for his family to read and enjoy; I am grateful that we have all been given that opportunity as well.
