43 Bolitho, Hector. A Penguin in the Eyrie: An R. A. F. Diary, 1939 - 1945. With 19 Illustrations.
London: Hutchinson, (1955). 
Octavo, blue cloth (hardcover), red spine label, gilt letters, 254 pp. Fine, with bookplate in a Very Good dust jacket with edgewear. From dust jacket: Hector Bolitho served as an Intelligence Officer with the R. A. F. from the beginning of the war to the end. He describes himself as a ÔPenguin in the eyrie,' because he did not fly in combat with the birds of prey. But the extent of his experience was remarkable. He served, first, in the Air Ministry, where he created the R. A. F. Journal, which became the official news magazines of the Service. Then he edited the secret intelligence review for Coastal Command, and in the last phase of the war he moved among the squadrons of aircraft that fought the U-boats and kept them out of the Channel, while the invasion fleet was crossing to France. This book is based on his diaries. It itells the story of the valiant combats -- told to him by the piots when they returned from battle -- and it also reveals the character, and the humour, of the R. A. F. during the long years when the aircrews played their part in the defence of Britain.
