Summary
"Pierre Clostermann DSO/DFC was one of the RAF's top scoring aces during World War II. Exiled from France at the beginning of the war, he joined the Air Force at the age of 19. He was to spend the next five years flying missions over France and Germany: attacking V1 flying bomb sites at tree-top height, saving damaged American bombers from predatory German fighters, engaging in dogfights and watching helplessly as his less fortunate friends fell to their deaths in the skies over the Channel. By his early twenties he was already France's premier fighter ace, with 33 confirmed kills to his name." "Drawn from his wartime diary, The Big Show is the story of how Pierre Clostermann made it through the war. Now restored to its original form, it contains all the ingredients of the truly great war memoir: wonderfully observed descriptions of wartime Britain, frighteningly evocative stories of savage dogfights over occupied France, an array of characters, and all the drama and bravery of a young man fighting a desperate war thousands of feet above the ground."--BOOK JACKET
