FINE. ‘Sammy" Simpson, in co-operation with aviation historian Norman Franks, has written a graphic account of his three years flying Spitfires on offensive ops over France.

His story is told with pace, spice and honesty, and his recollections of people and events provide a refreshing insight into the life of a wartime fighter pilot.
