Before he became a household name as a test pilot, Duke was one of the top scoring RAF fighter pilots of WWII. During these tumultuous years, he kept an almost daily diary and these pages reveal the innermost thoughts of a young fighter pilot as he managed to cope with life and death in a variety of theatres against a variety of opponents.
Scribbled with such immediacy as events unfold before him, Duke’s insights into the way the war was fought in the air – and the characters who fought it – are priceless and this book will stand the test of time as a valuable historical record.
A great signed aviation book.
