'They didn't think for one moment that they would find anything but a burnt-out fuselage and a charred skeleton; and they were apparently astounded whn they came upon my still-breathing body, lying in the sand near by' In 1938 Roald Dahl was fresh out of school and bound for his first job in Africa, hoping to find adventure far from home. However, he got far more excitement than he bargained for when the outbreak of the Second World War led him to join the RAF. His account of his experiences in Africa, crashing a plane in the Western Desert, rescue and recovery from his horrific injuries in Alexandria, and many other daring deeds, recreates a world as bizarre and unnerving as any he wrote about in his fiction.

Review:

His account of life as a fighter pilot in the Western Desert and in Greece has the thrilling intensity and the occasional grotesqueness of his fiction (Sunday Times)

Very nearly as grotesque as his fiction. The same compulsive blend of wide-eyed innocence and fascination with danger and horror (Evening Standard)

A non-stop demonstration of expert raconteurship (The New York Times Book Review)

Book Description:

The second instalment about the incredible life of Roald Dahl. An astonishing autobiography brought to life by one of England's leading actors, Ian Holm. It will capture the attention and the imagination of adults and children alike.
