206 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). B&w photographs, map. "A first-hand and very personal story, its lucid, exciting and readable narrative describes firstly the author's frustration as a Staff Officer in Cairo, then more significantly his triumphs and disasters as a Beaufort Flight Commander on anti-shipping operations from Malta in that crucial summer of 1942. Fighting uphill battles against 'the powers that be', Gibbs remained utterly dedicated to the airborne torpedoes as a weapon of war against shipping, and succeeded in changing not only tactical but also strategic policy - very rare indeed for a junior officer. But his book also gives new insight into the often haphazard way war was waged in the Mediterranean, the daily dangers, the inveitable losses." Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling and very light rubbing.
