Des Scott was one of New Zealand’s most famous war heroes. During the war he commanded 486 Squadron flying first with Hurricanes, then with Typhoons. Later, Scott commanded 123 Wing comprising 4 squadrons of rocket firing Typhoons in the invasion of Europe. This is not only Scott’s story, but that of the Typhoon and its enormous and devastating impact on the battlefields of Normandy.
A great memoir, capturing the essence of operations on the mighty Typhoon and a smart signed copy is a rare addition to any aviation library.
