Product description

Alex Frame's father was a flying boat pilot in war and afterwards in peace. This book concentrates on the years of World War II, particularly 1941 in the Mediterranean - a time of intense military activity seemingly full of setbacks and even disasters for the British and Commonwealth forces in the struggle against Hitler's war machine. Alex Frame also remembers the 1950s Coral Route, the legendary flying boat circuit around the Pacific Islands.
