Pierre Clostermann DFC
Pierre Clostermann flew Spitfires and Tempests during the second half of WWII and survived over 420 operational sorties to become one of France’s top aces, a politician and her most highly decorated citizen.
His memoir ‘Le Grand Cirque’ translated as ‘The Big Show’ based on a diary Clostermann kept throughout his war has sold over 3 million copies to become one of the classic, if controversial, accounts of the air war.
The page comes with a portrait picture and several photos from the book. NB. The page fits neatly into the Chatto & Windus first edition of ‘The Big Show’.
