A Funny and Exciting Autobiography

by Jeaniecobb on Feb 19, 2010

This is the second book of his autobiography. It contains the war stories of his experiences in the Royal Air Force in North Africa and the Mediterranean during World War II. Dahl spins the tale of his adventure starting when he was 22 and a new employee of the Shell Oil Company taking the steamer to Dar es Salaam, Tanganyika. Then with World War II heating up, he joins the R.A.F. in Kenya where he has harrowing misadventures in North Africa while learning to fly fighter plane. The story continues with exciting air fights in Greece against the German fighters and bombers. The tales are told in the funny and outrageous Dahl style but are more believable as he cleverly inserted quotes from letters he wrote to his worried mother as well as many old photos and pages from his pilot's logbook. This is great reading for all ages.
