Excellent. Highly recommended.

Jagdgeschwader 26 was probably the most famous of the Luftwaffe's fighter units. This is a useful account giving the view from the other side.


We have here an entertaining and rewarding book that advances the story of the men who left Britain’s colonies in the Caribbean to serve in the Royal Air Force during World War Two. This is one of those neglected facets of history which often places the men as one dimensional footnotes in bigger stories and it is high time we had more books like this one plugging the knowledge gap and setting a few things straight.

The author clearly understands flying and the technicalities of handling an aircraft with no engines. The chapters on UK glider forces were as you would expect, well written and comprehensive.
