If you want a "Boys jolly adventure" this is not the book for you. It is very deeply researched and beautifully and sympatheticly presented and offers an easily read and simple narrative of what went on in the skies during the war and it gently projects these thoughts into present day situations. Well worth the read to expand anyones understanding. I am looking forward to his next book.
A compelling read for anyone with an interest in the backdrop to the romantic picture we have of the RAF during WW2. Personal testimony, alongside historical, technical and political background leads to a rather different view of our RAF Heroes. Although, in fact, they come through as even more heroic than we imagined, as they continued to set out on missions day after day, and night after night, in the most treacherous conditions, doing their ' bit for their country' despite the unimaginable difficulties they faced. We owe them even more respect than we thought.
