Item description for FIGHTER PILOT'S SUMMER: Sequal to the Best-Selling Fighter Pilot by Norman Franks & Paul Henry Mills Richey...

Unknown to almost everyone Paul Richey started this sequel to his acclaimed book Fighter Pilot in 1941, but was unable to continue it beyond the initial chapters. Now, aviation author and historian Norman Franks, by gaining exclusive access to Paul's papers and diaries, has completed the work.

Richey, despite being seriously wounded in the Battle of Britain, returned to fly a tour of operations from RAF Biggin Hill in 1941 as a flight commander in 609 (West Riding) Squadron, RAuxAF, and gain a bar to the DFC he won in France. Fighter Pilot's Summer is the story not only of 609 Squadron's offensive war during that momentous summer, but also of Paul's exploits to the end of the war at Fighter Command HQ and then in India and Burma.

Reviews - What do customers think about FIGHTER PILOT'S SUMMER: Sequal to the Best-Selling Fighter Pilot?

A book of two parts  Feb 7, 2007
As Fighter Pilot, Commander Richeys first book on his experiences as an RAF pilot in France in the pre Dunkirk period, is a classic and one of my all time favourites, I was happy to see that he had finally done a sequel. However it has one huge problem, unfortunately the Commander passed away before he'd finished much more than the first seven chapters and whilst this is written in the same engaging informative style as used in Fighter Pilot. The rest of the book is pretty much a biography written by Norman Franks and though informative, is very dry and it depends rather too much on dates and statistics.
It is still an extremely good book, but the sudden transition between the two authors and they're contrasting writing styles is a bit jarring. Those who have read and loved Fighter Pilot will want to read this volume as well, but as a stand alone book it has unfortunately been marred by unavoidable circumstance.
