Book Description Leo Cooper, London, 1987. Cloth. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. Revised edition. Illustrated, octavo, pp (14), 325, slight foxing to the top edge, a slight bump to the bottom edge, otherwise an excellent copy in dustwrapper, virtually as new. [Commander Charles Lamb fought an exceptional war flying the slow and obsolete Fairey Swordfish for the Fleet Air Arm. It was an antiquated machine, but it could outmanoeuvre almost any other aircraft, and in Charles Lamb's hands, the 'Stringbag' - as the torpedo bomber was affectionately known - was a deadly weapon. He fought in the thick of the action. This is his story, from the first day of war as a Lieutenant on board Courageous, to the accident aboard Implacable in action against the Japanese in June 1945 which ended his war. A rare account of determination, action and spirit by a man who was an inspiration to those around him.]. Seller Inventory # 013604
