Reviews - What do customers think about DAILY TELEGRAPH BOOK OF AIRMEN'S OBITUARIES (Book of Airmen's Obituaries)?

A delightful read.  May 30, 2007
With the immediate sadness of their loss being long passed, this book allows the reader to rejoice at the lives of 100 outstanding "Airmen" who made their names in the world of aviation in one way or another.

Naturally, there are the famous names - such as; Cheshire VC, Tom Sopwith and Frank Whittle. Those who achieved high office - Elworthy and Spotswood. Then there are the heroes from two world wars in addition to those whose contribution was just as important but for whom combat would never come their way.

Altogether, this is a book about past "Airmen" (and women) who made a significant contribution either in time of peace or war. It includes civilians in addition to serving personnel dawn from the across the rank structure. Written with a professional charm which incorporates all the wit, insight compassion and humour that each of the colourful personalities would wish to see included, this book is not only a delightful read, it is a true testament to each of those who are portrayed here.
