Kimber, 1st ed., 1982. 192 pp., 13 photo-plates. D.j., 24 x 15cm. FINE. From being a pilot in 78 Squadron, bordering Durham and Yorkshire, to 76 Squadron, flying Halifaxes and bombing Germany, the author went to the Middle East and by 1944 he was Wing Commander of 171 Squadron in 100 Group in Norfolk. Here he misled the German defences and harried their night fighter organization. All these events, briefing rooms, mess parties, and rushed romances, help comprise an exceptional memoir.
