Over To You: ten terrifying tales of life as a wartime fighter pilot, from the master of the short story, Roald Dahl.

During the Second World War Roald Dahl served in the RAF and even suffered horrific injuries in an air crash in the Libyan desert.

Drawing on his own experiences as a fighter pilot, Dahl crafted these ten spine-tingling stories: of air battles in the sky; of the nightmare of being shot down; the infectious madness of conflict; and the nervy jollity of the Mess and Ops room.

Dahl brilliantly conveys the bizarre reality of a wartime pilot's daily existence, where death is a constant companion and life is lived from one heartbeat to the next.
