Damned Good Show by Derek Robinson
"This was a disappointment! Mr Robinson seems to have a low opinion of RAF officers. I don't think this story is a true depiction of RAF types of that era. I know some were like this and they were not all fair haired blue eyed boys doing the right..." Read more of this review »
