He writes vividly about his operational experiences including his encounter with a Messerschmitt which he brought down by knocking off its tail because he had run out of ammunition.  After being shot down, he was a POW in Stalag Luft 3 where he was involved in both The Wooden Horse Escape and The Great Escape.

    A readable memoir of a fascinating life.
