{detailed description}This is the autobiography of Air Chief Marshal Sir Philip Joubert : a fascinating record of how a boyhood dream came true. Other boys, fired by the romantic tales of Jules Verne and others, have longed to play their part in the adventure of the air, but few have sha4685
ped their whole lives, as he has done, around these early dreams. Fewer still have seen their ambitions crowned with such success, for Philip Joubert, through rare courage and ability, has earned distinction in two world wars. He tells here the story of an unusually adventurous life, spent in danger-spots in many different parts of the world. Exciting and colourful though it is, it has also its grim and sombre side, and Philip Joubert writes with thoughtfulness. He was indeed born under a fated sky, and his story is an inspiring one, for, high as his achievement has been, his endeavour has been still higher.
