The thrilling story of the top scoring Allied fighter pilot of World War II 'Johnnie' Johnson, who served with Fighter Command squadrons throughout the war, scoring his 38th and final victory in September 1944. From the moment the author joins his first operational Spitfire squadron in August 1940, the reader is taken on an epic journey through the great aerial fighter actions of the war including the Battle of Britain, sweeps across the Channel and over France, Dieppe and Normandy; and finally, operations across the Rhine and into Germany itself.?No one who wants to know what the air war was really like--anyway from the point of view of the fighter squadrons--can afford not to read this book by one of the most deservedly famous fighting officers in the short but glorious history of the R.A.F.?The story, of course, is magnificent--the record of the brilliantly successful fighting career, from the Battle of Britain to victory in Germany, of the man who shot down more enemy fighters than any other R.A.F. officer. Group Commander Johnson writes nearly as well as he flies and fights--which is saying a good deal ... A modest, straightforward, often superbly graphic account of nearly five years of fighting in the air.????????Marshal of the Royal Air Force Sir John C. Slessor, FLIGHT Magazine? ... will delight the professional airman and give the layman a view of combat air war that is rarely seen in a 'popular' account.????????Air Force Magazine?Some of the best descriptions of combat in the air during World War II. The book is filled with many episodes that move as swiftly as Spitfires and Hurricanes ... enough solid action to satisfy the most ardent adventure fan. At the same time he outlines air force training, planning and combat so skillfully that his well-written book is also a valuable treatise on the subject.????????The New York Sunday Times Book Review? ... absorbing and well-written personal account. A highly interesting narration of the human side of an airman's life throughout the war.????????Herald Tribune Book Review
