192 pp, 8 3/4" H. B&w photographs. "Although this is the story of a fighter pilot it is not a book about war. It deals with events which shaped the character of a boy who was born to be one of Housman's golden lads - born to trouble and an early death and to shoulder the sky and drink his ale. Mike Beytagh was a most unusual character. Fair haired and blue eyed, he was a fighting Irishman, full of blarney and courage, selfish, self-centred, yet capable of extreme generosity; loved and hated. He overcame tremendous early hazards to become a wartime hero and the C.O. of a famous fighter squadron. After the war he joined the Colonial service and was a popular administrator in a lonely outpost, dying suddenly at an early age and receiving almost the equivalent of a State Funeral." Tiny light stain/dent in margin of pages 174/5, light wrinkling and minor color fading at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wrinkling/wear, three small edge tears taped on inside, creases at top of spine, rubbing and some soiling on rear panel, two faint water stains at top inside edge, small ghost sticker mark on front panel.
