Fate is the Winner!
One of the very best books about flying ever written!
A superb book, even for those who are not familiar with the world of flight. And after 50 years, there has been nothing to compare, no next generation successor to Ernie Gann. A master story teller who does not need 'blood and guts' to tell a gripping story.
