With their garish sharks mouths painted on their aircraft 112 Squadron wreaked havoc on the German Afrika Korps inflicting terrible damage with machine gun fire on the soft skinned targets of truck convoys, and causing significant damage on the hard skinned Panzers with their under-slung bombs. Using his diary and flying log book to preserve the accuracy and immediacy of the events Bert Horden has written a superb and extremely graphic account of desert flying. Well illustrated throughout with over eighty previously unpublished photographs Shark Squadron Pilot is an important contribution to the recorded history of the Second World War.
