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.
Martin Shaw takes a fresh look at one of the most famous war stories of them all.
The actor, himself a pilot, takes to the skies to retrace the route of the 1943 raid
by 617 Squadron which used bouncing bombs to destroy German dams. He sheds new light
on the story as he separates the fact from the myth behind this tale of courage and
Along the way, Shaw hears from the last RAF veteran of the raid, as well as a German
survivor of the tsunami which resulted from the Moehne dam's destruction.
