Shrewsbury, 1st ed., 1996. 141 pp., photo-plates. D.j., 24 x 16cm. FINE. Here is the true story of the three years of peace leading up to the outbreak of World War II, as seen through the eyes of a young RAF pilot who was still only twenty when the war broke out. It describes a time when many squadron commanders allowed their pilots to take aircraft away on weekend leave. Despite its light-hearted vein it is written in the knowledge that when the storm broke in 1939 it was these young men who took the brunt of Hitler's onslaught.
