"This is the outstanding story of a Royal Air Force Volunteer Reservist who flew in the Battle of Britian and kept an exciting day-to-day diary of his experiences. Later, shot down over Northern France, he evaded capture and made his way home through Spain and Gibraltar with the help of the French Resistance Workers and the Allied escape organization. Again he wrote a vivid account of his exploits, but was unable to complete it because after a few months in the UK on fighter operations he was sent off to the Middle East in command of a squadron. There, after only a few weeks he was shot down and killed over El Alamein when leading his pilots on an operation on the evening of 17th July 1942. He was 22."
