    The story in this book is happening during the Cold War in the eighties when low flying Phantoms of the RAF were cruising the West German airspace. It is an aviation thriller in which a Phantom crew and a defected Sovjet test pilot fill up the leading role. Most aviation books I read are nonfiction […]

    A book for children (8-18 yrs); of course you will let that one be read and reviewed by your daughter! ‘Funny’, ‘different’ and ‘unexpected’ my daughter called this book. It is namely not a story that you will read every day. It is a book for children and adolescents, but of course can also be […]

The book starts on the front line where Jonathan is stationed as a fighter pilot, is shot down, and survives his injuries. The last days of air battle are grueling and traumatic and keep […]

    The name of the author does already gives the suspicion that this again would be a sort of ‘daddy adoration book’. And yes, indeed it is, and she doesn’t hide it! Dad was not much of a talker, but he has precisely documented how it went with him during WW II (diary, journal, letters to […]

    Amongst the twenty-five BoB veterans you will find, next to representatives of the whole Commonwealth, also a Polish, a Czech and a Belgian man, but no Dutch man. These I have also not been able to find on the BoB memorial plate in St. Pauls Cathedral, during a recent visit. I must admit that due […]

Who else can do this better than Michael Napier, who himself has served a long time at this squadron and has written a beautiful book about that time (Tornado above Tigris). This book […]
