In 1940, when young Canadians were rushing off to the recruiting offices, they had no idea what the fates had in store for them. One of these was young Allan Coggon, who elected to join the Air Force and was able to fulfill his dream of becoming a pilot. This is the story of his adventures, through flying training, a stint as an instructor, and then operational flying in Canada, Europe, and the Far East. His many adventures, near-misses, scrapes with authority, and problems with the abominable weather and living conditions in India and Burma, make fascinating reading. Well-written, graphic, factual, and often humorous, it details every aspect of a pilot's life, from raw recruit to operations against the enemy. A valuable addition to Coggon's story is his fascinating but brief account of the facets in the stirring Burma campaign. A good read!
Sam Shapton, B-25 Pilot, Vancouver, BC.
