Sandcastle / Dundurn, Toronto, 2008, first edition.. 140 pp, square soft cover (8" x 8"). ISBN 9781550028089 B&w photograph. Canadian Second World War Spitfire pilot Charley Fox, now in his late eighties, has had a thrilling life, especially on July 17, 1944, in France when he spotted a black staff car, the kind usually employed to drive high-ranking Nazi Germany dignitaries. Already noted for his skill in dive bombing and strafing the enemy, Fox went in to attack the automobile. As it turned out, the car very likely contained famed G e r m a n General Erwin Rommel, the Desert Fox, and Charley is now considered by many to be the pilot who seriously wounded him. Rommel, who at the time was the Germans' key military commander in France orchestrating the Third Reich's resistance t o th e Al li e s' D-Day invasion, was never the same after that. (The author) focuses on this seminal event in Charley Fox's life and in the conduct of the war, but he also provides fascinating aspects of the period, including profiles of noted Can ad ian a ce Geo rg e 'Buzz' Beurling, famed legless British pilot Douglas Bader, and Great Escape architect Walter Floody, as well as sidebars about Hurricanes, Spitfires, Messerschmitts, Focke-Wulfs, early jets, V-1 rockets, and a whole lot more." I nter ior - clea n a nd tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - small minor corner crease on front cover, very minor rubbing. Very Good+.
