Robert Hale First edition, first impression 1962. 189 pages with 13 photographs.
Near Fine condition hardback book in a Near Fine condition unclipped dustjacket. The DJ has some light rubbing but it looks smart in its protective cover.
The biography of the brave and modest young sergeant pilot who for many years was almost unknown outside the RAF. Some excerpts from the Dustjacket ‘Blurb’:
Battle of Britain Top Scorer ~ First Spitfire Over Japan ~ Toughest CO in Burma ~ The man who shot down the Heinkel that bombed Buckingham Palace. “In this book, a fellow pilot unravels the story of one of the greatest of The Few; the legendary eccentric, inspired humorist, hunter of the air and the deadliest marksman of them all.”
A very nice true first edition copy of this scarce book with its striking Biro jacket artwork, enhanced by a neatly presented Lacey signature.
