Alan Peart was born in Nelson, New Zealand. Joining 610 Squadron on completion of training, he served against the Germans and then the Japanese. Operating from 'Broadway' airstrip, his was the only spitfire not destroyed during air strikes.
This is an excellent first hand account of the air war in such varied theaters. The author writes of the appalling living conditions and the issues the aircrew faced living far from civilization.
