OPEN COCKPIT

OPEN COCKPIT 
A classic account of a fighter pilot on the western front, Arthur Gould Lee's memoir is the work of a man who survived 118 patrols, 56 combats, and being shot down three times. Lee retired from the RAF as an Air Vice Marshal in 1946, and his book is a remarkable record of a lucky flier's life.
Thanks to a broken leg during at his flight school, Arthur Stanley Gould Lee gained valuable additional time flying trainers before he was posted to France in World War I. In November 1917 during low level bombing and strafing attacks, he was shot down three times by ground fire. He spent eight months at the front and accumulated 222 hours of flight time in Sopwith Pups and Camels during a staggering 118 patrols; being engaged in combat 56 times. He lived to retire from the RAF as an Air Vice-Marshal in 1946. Author of three books, this is by far his best. Lee puts you in the cockpit in a riveting account of life as a fighter pilot at the front. At turns humorous and dramatic, this thoughtful, enlightening, account is a classic to be ranked with Winged Victory by W. V. Yeates, or Cecil Lewis's Sagittarius Rising.
