One of Churchill's Own - John Greenwood. This has some less than complimentary reviews on Amazon, so I approached it with a bit of caution. It starts off well, service in France where he had some success, but his Battle of Britain experience is where his complaints start as he felt his squadron was poorly lead, and suffered many casualties leadership wise. A couple of trans Atlantic trips as a Hurricat pilot followed, then stints in India and the Far East. John clearly had a lot of problems with authority, although he is also very quick to mention pilots he admired such as Frank Carey and Tom Gleave. From about halfway through, the flying descriptions pretty much stop and he mentions all the many drunken antics he was involved in that would eventually see him court martialled. He freely admits at the close that alcohol was his downfall as he didn't pass out, but would turn violent and vandalize things. All in all, it's just a bit of a boring memoir really. He could have elaborated far more on the flying/tactics side of his experiences, but over half the book is a pretty endless routine of 'posted, went to the bar, fell out with the CO, set fire to something, posted'.
