Secondhand. Very good condition. Minor wear to book corners and edges.
Wing Commander Charles Learmonth, DFC and Bar, was a well-known flyer in World War II, who was based in Pearce, Western Australia, and involved in the air search for HMAS Sydney.
He fought in the skies of New Guinea and was killed at the age of 26 in a crash 30 kilometres northwest of Rottnest Island. Learmonth Airport was named in his honour.
In this extensively researched biography of Learmonth, Charles Page fills a significant gap in Australian World War II history. (publisher blurb)
