About this product
- DescriptionAt just eighteen years of age, and still barely a man, Robin begins his training as a young recruit in the Royal Air Force, with the hope that in time, he'd be the pilot of his own fighter plane. After passing through training with flying colours, he soon finds himself at the helm of a de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito, and on perilous missions over Nazi Germany. In his brief moments of respite, he finds love in the hands of Cathy, who teaches him what it really is to be a man. But then disaster strikes during a mission over Germany, where he gets shot down and captured by the enemy. Interned as a prisoner of war in the infamous Stalag Luft 3, he eventually manages a daring escape and begins his long and precarious journey back to England, in the hope that he can once again return to the air as a fighter-pilot.
- Author BiographyTrevor Towers was born in Brighton, England at the end of World War II. As the son of a naval officer, he spent much of his childhood in Malta, where his father was posted. Trevor cherishes these memories to this day. The family later returned to England and settled in Portsmouth. Trevor attended the 'Royal Hospital School', also known as 'Holbrook', near Ipswich. It was a boarding school with a strong focus on instilling its pupils with the values and skills necessary for a career in the British Armed Forces. Trevor subsequently spent many years in the Army; his experiences from those days have a strong influence in his writing. He has married twice, and has five sons. Much of Trevor's life has been spent travelling the world or living overseas. Time spent in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Africa, and Asia has inspired many of his stories. In 2004, whilst holidaying in Phuket, Thailand, Trevor and his wife Petra were caught in the Boxing Day Tsunami. They were swept away by the full force of the wave that killed so many but miraculously, they survived. Despite their terrifying experience, they fell in love with Thailand and its people, and subsequently settled in Hua-Hin, where they still reside today.
