'THE BIG SHOW is as close as you'll ever get to fighting for your life from the cockpit of a Spitfire or Typhoon. Perhaps the most viscerally exciting book ever written by a fighter pilot.' Rowland White
Pierre Clostermann DFC was one of the oustanding Allied aces of the Second World War. A Frenchman who flew with the RAF, he survived over 420 operational sorties, shooting down scores of enemy aircraft while friends and comrades lost their lives in the deadly skies above Europe.
THE BIG SHOW, his extraordinary account of the war, has been described as the greatest pilot's memoir of WWII.
‘A truly remarkable book ... the most gripping descriptions of aerial combat I have ever read’ New York Times
‘A thrilling read ... ranks among the finest accounts of war’ Guardian
‘A magnificent story’ Daily Telegraph
‘A classic ... gripping, ripping, full of action’ Economist
‘Vividly captures the spirit of air combat’ The Times
'The relentlessness of the flying is extraordinary and the casual loss of life chilling. It really is one of the very best war memoirs ever written: exhilarating, exciting, deeply moving and a book that lingers in the mind long after the last page has been turned.' James Holland
