ANDREW MILLAR    Book Number: 86068    Product format: Hardback

Sub-titled 'The Compelling Memoir of Squadron Leader Andrew Millar DSO, DFC, and The Second World War Battle Against Japan'. Millar started as a medical student before volunteering for the RAF during WWII. He served as a pilot, commanded No. 20 Squadron with distinction in the war against Japan, and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and DSO. This citation attests to his 'superb leadership'. It is a candid and retrospective personal account using notes made at the time and his comprehensive log book. Millar's gripping prose describes the trials and tribulations of mounting combat operations against the Japanese while based in India and Burma, firstly in Westland Lysanders and then piloting Hawker Hurricanes. A useful map depicts Millar's movements and corelates to the respective chapter numbers including his arrival in India, June 1942, Bhopal Detachment up to October 1942, Nidania codename 'George' up to February 1944, Madras up to December 1944, Ranchi, Sapam, Thazi, Monywa, Thedaw Again and more right up to December 1945 in Don Muang, Siam. 228pp, previously unpublished photos.
