 About the Book 

This is not only the story of one mans war, but of an aircraft - the Typhoon, or Tiffy as it was affectionately known - which the author describes as a low-bred carthorse whose pedigree had received a sharp infusion of hot-headed sprintersMoreThis is not only the story of one mans war, but of an aircraft - the Typhoon, or Tiffy as it was affectionately known - which the author describes as a low-bred carthorse whose pedigree had received a sharp infusion of hot-headed sprinters blood. He recounts his time as a young commander of a rumbustious New Zealand Air Force squadron, and later as the RAFs youngest Group Captain at the age of 25. His story includes conflict in the air over Normandy, Belgium, Holland and Germany, where the Typhoons fought their last actions and where Desmond Scott earned major decorations from Belgium, France and Holland.
