Adie Roberts takes a look at a book from Pen & Sword Publishing Memoirs of a Stuka Pilot, to just what life was like during this period in history that was exciting, terrifying, and very dangerous.

Long ago I read Stuka Pilot and this book sounds like it may be even better, considering his ops in the Mediterranean. I'll buy a copy.

I'm getting a copy to read from my local library, which is better than buying because I already have 8 full bookcases

It was an interesting read and not overly dramatic and filled with personal "heroism" tales like many memoirs. A good book to get from the library
