Pierre Clostermann was a French fighter pilot in the World War II. He wrote a book about the war. It was actually based on his diary that he had been writing during the war. I know only the French name for the book, which is Le Grand Cirque.
He also wrote another book (Feux Du Ciel) in which he tells about other war pilots.
If you've read Clostermann's books I'd like to hear your opinion about them. Smile

I read Pierre Clostermann's book "The Big Show"many years ago. I enjoyed it very much, I have not read the other book he wrote.

Very Happy I am very glad to hear you enjoyed it, because I did, too. I happened to find those two books from a second-hand bookshop last July and I've read them both twice now. I found them very interesting. Idea
