This is a war memoir based on notebooks kept at the time which begins by describing the author's efforts to get into the war from the Solomon Islands. Pilot training in England was followed by night-bombing of the German warships in Brest. Terence O'Brien was one of the few pilots who completed the tally of sorties after which pilots were taken off operational flying. Anxious to return to fighting, O'Brien obtained a transfer to the Pacific where he describes his flying experiences from a jungle base in the Dutch East Indies. Other books by Terence O'Brien include "Out of the Blue: A Pilot with the Chindits" and "The Moonlight War".
