182 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). B&w photographs. "(A) graphic account of (Sampson's) three years flying Spitfires on offensive operations over France and from continental bases in France and Holland. He has covered in some detail his period commanding the Free French Wing, of which little has been recorded in Britain. In this he has been helped by a number of his former pilots. His story is told with pace, spice and honesty and his recollections of people and events provide a refreshing insight into the life of a wartime fighter pilot." A few very tiny shallow dents on rear board. Dust jacket has three small areas of tiny dents and three line indentations on rear panel.
