Fighter Pilot: The Memoirs of Legendary Ace Robin Olds
Review by Roger Hixon
I have just read the book, Fighter Pilot. It's the story of American pilot Robin
Olds. A very enjoyable story of a very interesting man, who was involved in many
aspects of aviation, from front line fighter/bomber pilot, to working in the Pentagon.
He fought in WW2 and Vietnam, with distinction.
Anyone wanting to read this book, please contact me to borrow it.
As the RAF celebrates the centenary of its formation, Sophie Raworth follows the
story of her grandfather, a pilot in the RAF's predecessor, the Royal Flying Corps.
Using clues among his possessions, Sophie pieces together his experiences and those
of other young men who fought and died above the battlefields of France and Belgium.
