Very interesting book about Crab Air

#1
I've just finished a book called: "The Right of the Line" by John Terraine. It's about the role of Crab Air in the European war 1939 - 1945. At that time they used to be referred to as the "Brylcream Boys".

I picked the book up in a charity shop and I was surprised at the in-depth treatment it contains. I never realised just how important the role of Crab Air was in Dubya Dubya Two, since they're traditionally frowned on by squaddies anyway.

The author is rather scathing about Monty, particularly after the D-Day landings, but he remains fair throughout. Even thought it's a bit of a door-wedge at around 850 pages, it's well worth a read, even though it was originally published in 1985.
