Above all things, AC1 Bert Barnet, wireless operator, longed to fly a plane.

Bert got his wish - but in a way that made his worst nightmares seem tame!

Three thousand feet up in hostile night skies, alone with an unconscious pilot in a shot-up Beaufighter, the completely untrained Bert got his chance to fly a fighting plane - or to die trying!

Introduction

While we try to keep Commando as authentic as possible, we have taken liberties over the years. Sometimes the plots are well over-the-top, sometimes - like here - they're just the tiniest bit far-fetched. It's still very believable but... For all that it is a good yarn, one that'll have you rooting for the main character. Let's hope the author doesn't let you down.

Inside artist, Medrano, is up there with the best of war aviation artists and his crisp, precise eye for detail adds an extra layer of enjoyment to the story. He's also not afraid to use a lot of black ink, and does so to good effect.

No doubt it was Ken Barr's cover that drew you in, rest assured the contents of the book live up to its promise.

Calum Laird, Commando Editor
