When the SS Athenia was torpedoed during the first hours of World War II, James Goodson survived the sinking and went on to become one of the war's leading fighter aces. Goodson flew Spitfires for an RAF Eagle Squadron before later converting to Thunderbolts and Mustangs with the Fourth Fighter Group, earning the reputation 'King of the Strafers'. Breathtaking descriptions of the aerial dog-fights, and vivid portraits of the men that fought, combine in this dramatic, gripping story of courage and sacrifice.
