Spine ends bumped, pages pale tan; no binding problems, pages clean. White dust wrapper flaps pale tan, dw edgeworn and lightly creased. ; A moving and powerful autobiography of Group Captain Sir Hugh Dundas CBE, DSO, DFC, one of the most distinguished fighter pilots of World War II. 'He writes of his wartime experiences with eloquence and candor, and particularly of his period as Squadron Leader and Wing Commander and his involvement in the Battle of Britain.'; ' Mr. Dundas is very modest in discussing his own accomplishments, and does not go into detail on his own air victories. Rather, he concentrates on the evolution of the RAF and its campaigns, and on personal insights. The reader gets a very good sense of life as a pilot, and sees how one young man matures over the course of the war. Mr. Dundas also discusses his personal relationships with other famous fliers, such as Douglas Bader and "Johnnie" Johnson.' Image is actual copy on offer.
