Last Enemy – Richard Hillary

Opis towaru

In 1918, the RAF was established as the world’s first independent air force. To mark the 100th anniversary of its creation, Penguin are publishing the Centenary Collection, a series of six classic books highlighting the skill, heroism and esprit de corps that have characterised the Royal Air Force throughout its first century.

The Last Enemy is Richard Hillary’s extraordinary account of his experience as a Spitfire pilot in the Second World War. Hillary was shot down during the Battle of Britain, leading to months in hospital as part of Archibald McIndoe’s ‚Guinea Pig Club’, undergoing pioneering plastic surgery to rebuild his face and hands.

The Last Enemy was first published in 1942, just seven months before Hilary’s untimely death in a second crash and has gone on to be hailed as one of the classic texts of World War II.
