The Flying Duddridges of Hanley, Duddridge, Lew
4 Duddridge, Lew The Flying Duddridges of Hanley
Trafford Publishing 2011 1426966539 / 9781426966538 Paperback Near Fine Signed by Author
Signed by Author; Only light edge wear to glossy pictorial card covers. Author's address stamp on front fly leaf. ; Inscribed by author "June 2011 Best regards Lew Duddridge" on front fly leaf ; Trade PB; 9 X 5.90 X 0.80 inches; 303 pages; Lew and Len Duddridge hadn't planned on entering an occupation that made death their partner. They had dreamed of working as farmers, teachers, bankers, or civil servants, but instead they became wartime pilots. In The Flying Duddridges of Hanley, author Lew Duddridge narrates the story of how he and his brother Len, two brothers from Hanley, Saskatchewan, served with the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II. They were the only two of the thirteen young men from this small town who would live to tell their story. This memoir relays the Duddridges' many flight experiences, such as making their first solo flights in a Spitfire aircraft and crash landing a burning Spitfire after a German FW 190 damaged the engine and propeller. Interwoven with tales about their farm upbringing and their personal lives, The Flying Duddridges of Hanley, brings World War II to life from the perspective of two brothers who became men while experiencing the terrors and tragedy of WWII.

Above and Beyond  The Canadians' War in the Air, 1939-45, Dunmore, Spencer
5 Dunmore, Spencer Above and Beyond The Canadians' War in the Air, 1939-45
Toronto McClelland & Stewart 1996 0771029284 / 9780771029288 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 
Boards and DJ show light edge wear. Front flap creased; A bright, solid book. Dust jacket in Mylar jacket protector, unclipped. ; 9.30 X 6.40 X 1.60 inches; 384 pages; "From the first skirmishes over Europe in September 1939, Canadian airmen served in almost every theatre of the Second World War, from bases in Britain and Europe, North Africa, and Southeast Asia. And in the months and years that followed, with the slaughter mounting in hostile skies around the globe, the contribution of Canadian pilots, navigators, gunners, air bombers, and flight engineers grew out of all proportion to their country’s population.In the early days of the conflict, great numbers of Canadians served in units of Britain’s RAF and Fleet Air Arm. As the war progressed, however, the Royal Canadian Air Force came into its own, and by Germany's surrender, forty-eight RCAF squadrons were overseas, almost completely manned by Canadian officers and men. Among the Canadians were Johnny Fauquier and Reg Lane, Canada’s leading bomber pilots; Stan Turner, perhaps the country’s greatest fighter leader; Len Birchall, the gallant “Saviour of Ceylon”; the redoubtable ace Buzz Beurling; the great naval hero Hammy Gray; Roly Dibnah, Bert Houle, and many others.These brash young men from the Empire’s senior dominion had little time for ceremony and tradition. Countless British officers considered them dangerously independent and lacking in respect for rank. But in the air, where it counted, the Canadians more than proved their worth. Combining first person accounts of the action and his own vivid prose, Dunmore captures the high drama and gut-churning tension of dogfights and bomber raids, charts the victories and defeats of the armies and navies below, and recreates the mood abroad in wartime as the world watched the drama unfold."

Only slight wear.; A bright, solid book, DJ in protective Mylar sleeve, unclipped. ; 10 X 7.10 X 0.80 inches; 208 pages; "During the war, Canadian squadrons flew hundreds of operations over the North Atlantic, the English Channel, the North Sea and the Bay of Biscay. Such operations included reconnaissance flights as well as shipping strikes to Norway, the Netherlands and the French coast. The Canadians proved themselves admirably despite heavy losses some of the heaviest of the war. From a force of some 4,000 officers and airmen and 270 aircraft at the beginning of the war, the RCAF had within four months doubled in strength, with 8,287 officers and airmen, and 14 operational squadrons in Canada. In all, 48 RCAF squadrons had served overseas by the end of the war.This comprehensive study covers every success achieved by Canadian squadrons listed in Coastal Command's records for World War II including attacks on U-boats and enemy controlled vessels. Each operation is reported in meticulous detail, from the time of departure, current weather, hours flown and crew involved to a description of the action itself."
