Written by George Beurling - perhaps Canada's greatest WWII ace and "Mr Deflection Shot" - an account of his RAF career up to the air fight over Malta in 1942. Perhaps the toughest air fight that the allies faced in WWII. Written with some assistance from another writer - I suppose a ghost writer. The writing is honest and "homely" and somewhat of a diary style but to those of us (dare I say "the few") who enjoy this sort of thing a decent read. Not too much details on the strategy of the Malta campaign or the impact on Malta itself but that's because it's the memoir of a fighter pilot. So if you like this topic, you know who you are, it's a quick and enjoyable read. ( )
