Notes

First edition, this copy from the library of "Johnnie" Johnson, "the Commonwealth's premier ace of the war" (p195), his ownership inscription to the front free endpaper, and page reference "leadership p49" to the half-title. In 1943 Johnson was made Wing Commander of No. 144 Wing (Canadians) flying out of RAF Kenley, his use of the distinctive "finger four" formation with them led to them being nicknamed "The Wolfpack". Seven references to Johnson in the text.
