Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Based on the logbooks of a pilot in the Mediterranean during World War II, this book is an exciting blend of war history and personal memoir that focuses on the pilots of the Sunderland flying boat T9046 during 1941--a year of intense military conflict that included many setbacks for the British and Commonwealth forces in the region. The logbooks cover a 30-year career and include the years leading up to World War II through to later flights in Australia, Tahiti, and the surrounding islands of French Polynesia.

Includes bibliographical references and index.
