The hero, Johnny Franks, always had ambitions to be a pilot and these dreams are realised and tested to the full when flying Lancaster Bombers during the Second World War.This is a tale full of drama, suspense, action and true British spirit. It is told in a wonderful authentic way, not too surprising since the author had a personal involvement in the kind if action described so vividly and realistically, including the activities of the French Resistance Movement and the bombing raid on Cologne. It is this combination of authenticity and dramatic narrative that makes this book such a compelling and fascinating wartime adventure.
