Unread, unmarked. 190 pages plus 16 pages of b&w photographs, 4 maps. Appendices. Index. Mick Ensor's life was more dramatic and exciting than most. Having learned to fly in New Zealand, Ensor joined 500 Squadron in 1941 and flew several dangerous operations over the North Sea and the French coast. He soon earned fame and the DFC when, in January 1942, he got a severely damaged Hudson home despite intense flak and appalling weather conditions. Following that, he haunted U-boats over the Atlantic and then took part in the Allied invasion of North Africa. Postwar he flew over 200 missions in the Berlin airlift and served for a couple of years with the US Navy, patrolling the Russian and Japanese coasts during the Korean War. An unprecedented and illuminating insight into a number of very different theatres of the air war, this is also a perceptive analysis of a flying man's struggle to come to terms with life outside the cockpit.
