'There are scores of stories within the narrative, made vivid through the querying of those who took part. You read about their motives, fears, survivals and casualties...A fascinating special history.' -- Douglas Fisher Legion 'This masterly piece of research will surely become the standard reference on the subject.' Aeroplane Monthly 'Well bound and printed, with 50 excellent black and white photos, this book will find a ready home on the shelf of anyone interested in military flying.' The Evening Telegram, St John's Newfoundland 'Christie has mastered a large body of documentation and interviews to write this historical account. Despite the enormous wealth of detail and a cast of thousands, he has managed to produce a clear narrative of interest to anyone who knows how challenging the Atlantic can be.' -- Sidney Allinson The Northern Mariner
