Reviews - What do customers think about SHOT DOWN IN FLAMES: A World War II Fighter Pilot's Remarkable Tale of Survival?

Of fighters and skin graft operations!  Jul 2, 2001
This is yet another book on the Battle of Britain by one of the "Few", but it is special in a number of ways. For one, the author gets burnt pretty badly during one interception of a Lufewaffe raid. He then spends the next 2 years in hospital recuperating from his injuries. Unfortunately for him, plastic surgery at that time was still in its infancy. Nevertheless, he went through more than 40(!!!) skin graft operations, and became one of the founding members of the "Guinea Pig Club". Judging from the photos, he comes away from that experience none the worse. Even more amazingly, he subsequently recovered and returned to combat flying.

A last point of note, the "Guinea Pig Club" still holds reunions!
