"The Roald Dahl Omnibus". Roald Dahl, 1948. It would have been a great literary travesty if Roald Dahl would have suffered a brain injury before writing his great classics. Before becoming a famous writer, he was a WWII combat pilot. On his first mission in North Africa he becomes lost. Low on fuel, he crashes in the desert. His nose is broke, cranium fractured and he is blinded. This story, along with twenty five, amazing others are included in the "Omnibus". Fortunately Roald Dahl recovers completely, and even more impressive than going on to write "Charley and the Chocolate Factory", he shoots down five Luftwaffe aircraft, becoming an ace in the RAF.
