1st ed., 1959. 192 pp., frontis., + 5 photo-plates. D.j., 22 x 14cm. A little loss to rear of d.j., o/w V.G. Mike Beytagh overcame tremendous early hazards to become a wartime hero and the C.O. of a famous fighter squadron. After the war he joined the Colonial service and was a popular administrator in a lonely outpost, dying suddenly at an early age and receiving almost the equivalent of a State Funeral. This book deals with the events which shaped the character of a boy who was to be one of Housman's golden lads and to shoulder the sky.
