Book Description Crecy, 1993. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Reprint. 206 pp, large 8vo (9 3/8" H). B&w photographs. "Charles Pickard joined the Royal Air Force before the outbreak of World War II, and at the beginning of hostilities was posted to No.99 Bomber Squadron and was later to command the Czech 311 Squadron. He took part in the Bruneval raid, and came to the forefront of public attention when he starred as 'F for Freddie' in 'Target for Tonight', a film made to illustrate the operational role of the bomber. His secret missions began when he was posted to RAF Tempsford, the jumping off ground for the SOE operations from where, as a Lysander pilot, his sorties took him deep into enemy territory at night to drop secret agents and supplies. Time after time he demonstrated his extraordinary ability for night flying but, ironically, was killed while taking a prominent part in the famous daylight raid on the prison at Amiens." Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, light rubbing, irregular light line indentation on front panel, two tiny pin holes on front flap-fold. Bookseller Inventory # 15938
