Sign in to check out Check out as guest. Hostilities ceased just as this second British Pacific Fleet, with Hank aboard now as a full time squadron pilot, had left Sydney in Australia on its way to join in the attack on the mainland of Japan. Hank's narrative of the many happenings and incidents during his four years of operations from Carriers is vivid and exciting. And his description of the high risk involved in flying on and off the unstable and moving flight decks of Aircraft Carriers, is not just gripping, but informative and interesting.
Strong friendships too were formed among aircrews and Hank writes movingly about the deep sadness quietly suffered when friends were killed. But Hank's story is by no means all doom and war, his account of life ashore, sometimes with attractive but elusive young women, is often brilliantly funny. Basically his book is not about the heroes and leaders of naval air warfare, although he points out that there were many of them, but a portrayal of an average young man, anxious to fight for his country, but having to cope with the tension of warfare.
