Forgotten Aviator: A High Flying Gentlemen by Walsh, Barbara (2007) Paperback.

The forgotten few: the indian AIR force in WW2. Family, buddies, fellow enthusiasts, and anyone else . Family, buddies, fellow enthusiasts, and anyone else interested: You all know (and pull my leg) about my lifelong interests in the Indian Air Force, and the Second World War. You’ve seen me devour books, and heard (or read) me going on and on about both topics. But among all those great books, I never found one combining the two - the air war and India. There are many fine books out there about the Indian Army in World War 2. There are books about the air war in the China-Burma-India theatre of World War 2, mostly from a British viewpoint.

The crew that landed their B-25 in Russia endured a bizarre odyssey. At first they were greeted with open arms by the Soviet military, and even conducted tours of their plane for Russian aviators. But this attitude changed quickly as they were shifted to higher and higher levels of authority in that strange and brutal country.

Forgotten Aviator: The Adventures of Royal Leonard, by Barry S. Martin (2011). He knew and flew with the famous people of his time: Doolittle, Chennault, and Jackie Cochran. He flew the Hump, bombers over China, and was Chiang Kai-shek’s pilot – and there’s much more to tell!

Hubert Latham, well-known as Bleriot's rival, was educated at Oxford and a member of early twentieth-century high society. He was a popular figure with the English public and mingled with notorious sporting personalities and French avant-garde artists. He flew a balloon across the Channel in 1905, and led treks in the Sudan, Abyssinia and Indochina in 1906-08, before competing with Bleriot for the Channel Flight in 1909. (Bleriot beat him but it is disputed whether this was through sabotage or intrigue.) Latham went on to thrill the world with his cool approach to danger in aviation challenges in the US, Russia, Egypt and England, before his untimely death in the Congo at just 29 years old. Touching on wider themes, including the importance of the popular Press and its impact on public opinion, the political manoeuvrings and military build-up in the period 1910-14, and the emergence of many aviatrix, friends of Latham, who entered the sporting scene at this time, this is an exceptionally-researched biography of one of aviation's most mysterious characters.
