Listing Detail Tabs

Three great books "of the air" provide compulsive reading and a panoramic picture of man's relatively recent mastery of the skies.

REACH FOR THE SKY is the celebrated and inspiring story of Douglas Bader, who lost his legs in an air crash and was discharged from the RAE., only to fight his way back to become one of the great heroes of the Battle of Britain,
"As a story of war adventures this is an excellent book, but it goes farther in revealing what the body can stand if oni the spirit will put it under fierce compulsion." The Times

"It is an astonishing story of will triumphant and courage indomitable, in both peace and war" Howard Spring, Country Life

THE MAN IN THE HOT SEAT is Doddy Hay's own enthralling account of his collaboration as test pilot with the inventor James Martin, which led to the development and perfecting of the ejector seat.

"His story is told with the utmost clarity regarding what happened, with complete candor about his own feelings, and with a vividness that owes nothing to sensational writing." The Times Literary Supplement

"This is a fascinating book about an extremely brave, but modest man." Belfast Telegraph

SKYMEN Larry Forrester
