Synopsis

In this honest and detailed account, Charles Jackson narrates the tale of the first thirty years of his life, years that spanned both world wars and many social changes.Born at the start of the First World War, into a fervently religious family, the author's youth was a struggle to achieve identity and independence. While both his personal world and the national political life were experiencing great turmoil, Jackson forced himself into an RAF career, this interspersed here and there by a touch of romance.The author tackles the uncertainties of wartime life with a philosophical and easy-going approach that must touch the reader. Despite the fact that his colleagues often did not come back from sorties, and he feared the same fate for himself, Jackson is unfailingly positive and optimistic in his analysis. The reader is left feeling that they have lived these years with the author and have triumphed against adversity, just as he has.
