The Diary Of A RAF Lancaster Pilot

Very dissappointing. A tedious chronology and a waste of money that i could have spent better. I believe it should be removed from your book store.

With all due respect to Leslie Joy, this unfortunately is not a good read, I read it in just under an hour and it was just a short and boring factual account of the steps he went through from when he was a boy to present day, you get absolutely no idea of what it was like piloting a large aircraft over war torn Germany, the terror, the challenges etc. This should really be something that is called a vanity publication, only to be read by family and close friends. Do not waste your money.

Very poorly written. Les should have employed an assistant to beef up the experiences. I am sure many of his situations could have been researched to give the reader a clearer. Picture of life as a WW2. Pilot. Andy foley
