About the Author:
Gordon Olive, DFC, always a copious note taker, made a detailed record of his RAF career and wrote up his original manuscript after the war. He was also an aviation artist and painted numerous detailed aerial combat scenes that he had experienced during the Battle of Britain – scenes impossible to capture on film. Dennis Newton met Gordon in 1986 and helped edit his memoir. He is an aviation journalist and author of seven books, including A Few of the Few, Clash of Eagles and Severe Weather Flying.
