Synopsis
An auto-biography of an extremely accomplished and heroic figure, it also gives a broader historical insight into various weighty events of the time. From beginnings that would be enough to deter most - being severely wounded as a sniper at Beaumont Hamel in 1916 - he really came into his own as a controller in the Battle of Britain. Awarded the OBE and promoted to group captain, he went on to become a pivotal figure in the defence of Malta. Woody writes extremely well and gives exceptional attention to detail. His book is filled with anecdotes and humour, and is an illuminating and significant primary source, ideal for historians, military buffs and anyone with an interest in flying.
