9780099551829: The Last Enemy

The Last Enemy is the story of Richard Hillary, one of Sebastian Faulks' three 'fatal englishmen'. In this extraordinary account, the author details his experiences as a fighter pilot in the Second World War, in which he was shot down, leading to months in hospital as part of Archibald McIndoe's 'Guinea Pig Club', undergoing pioneering plastic surgery to rebuild his face and hands.

The Last Enemy was first published in 1942, just seven months before Hilary's untimely death in a second crash and has gone on to be hailed as one of the classic texts of World War Two.

Review:

" The Last Enemy rapidly acquired the aura of a book that says something vital, whose importance goes beyond what it literally describes" ( Sebastian Faulks)

"This slim volume of Hillary's seems to have a weight which makes it sink into the depths of one's memory, while tons of printed bulk drift as flotsom on its surface" (Arthur Koestler)

"One of the classic books of World War Two" (Philip French London Review of Books)

"Rivetingly well told...It will still speak to anyone who cares for the romance and tragedy of a lost hero." (Godfrey Smith Sunday Times)

"Elegantly affecting memoir" (David Horspool The Times)
