|Air Vice - Marshal D.C.T. Bennett - C.B. - C.B.E. - D.S.O.
In this book, " Pathfinder " Bennett, who contributed to our war effort in a number of important capacities, has set down his impressions of a very full " one man's war ". His name needs no introduction to all those who anxiously followed the news of British bombing raids on Germany ; but the book covers other subjects besides our bombing offensive.
Air Vice - Marshal Bennett had unique opportunities to observe or participate in some of the operations that were essential to the final victory, but foremost was the creation of the Pathfinder Force, which he conceived, founded, and commanded throughout its whole life.
Both as an honest and highly readable autobiography and as an account of the air war told from a unique and privileged viewpoint, this is an important book. It should be read by all who are concerned with the security of this country and the future of a troubled world.
