Canadian “Airforce Magazine” Review by Vic Johnson, Editor.
“During his wartime years as an American fighter pilot in the RCAF, Philip Vickers was known by his birth name, Philip Bockman.
“With 102 wartime Spitfire Missions with 443 Sqn in Europe, Bockman did indeed survive victory, then changed his Germanic sounding name to Vickers, and went on to a long career as a noted actor, sculptor and writer in the USA.
“Written in the Mickey Spillane style best described as “earthy”, this book gives a civid description of day-to-day life in the RCAF at war. The companion log book is an accurate reproduction of the original.”
