1st ed., 1972. 286 pp., 37 photo-plates. D.j., 22 x 14cm. V.G. From its early dogfights over the Somme, to the Malayan campaign in 1941-42, the steaming Burmese jungles, the perilous air corridors to Berlin, and to Suez and Egypt, the author comprehensively traces the fifty-seven years of history of 27 Squadron focusing on both its aircraft and its courageous pilots.
