A personal account of Frank Holmes who was an RNZAF pilot in the South West Pacific during WWII. Flying Avenger dive bombers, and later Corsair fighters, the book gives an insight into the operations and environments faced by the Air Force squadrons during the Pacific War. The camaraderie between the aircrews, ground crews and our allies in this theatre of war are brought out in the text.

Post-war, Frank had a distinguished career in academia, business and as an adviser to successive governments. He was knighted for his services to education and economics in 1975.
