3 Spaight, J. M., C.B., C.B.E., Late Principal Assistant Secretary, Air Ministry. Volcano Island.
London: Geoffrey Bles, MCMXLIII. 
Octavo, grey cloth (hardcover), 144 pp + iv plates. Near-Fine, in a Very Good dust jacket with light edgewear. From dust jacket: Mr. J. M. Spaight, late Principal Assistant Secretary at the Air Ministry and a leading authority on air warfare, here describes the amazing growth of our air power and the development of our air strategy up to the end of 1942. His “Volcano Island” is Great Britain, transformed from a peaceful land into a hotbed of bomber-station “volcanoes,” ready to weak vengeance on those who seek to imperil the security of the world. Like Swift's Laputa, our island is now able to fly, so that neighbouring enemies can be “pelted from above with great stones, against which they have no defence but by creeping into cellars or caves.” How that assault began, from what small beginnings there was built up the massive offensive we are witnessing to-day, this book attempts to show.
