Summary
  • "From Frederick Forsyth, the grand master of international suspense, comes his most intriguing story ever--his own"--
  • He was the RAF's youngest pilot at the age of nineteen, barely escaped the wrath of an arms dealer in Hamburg, got strafed by a MiG during the Nigerian civil war; the Stasi arrested him, the Israelis feted him, the IRA threatened him. And that's just for starters. Forsyth has been writing extraordinary real-world novels of intrigue for over forty years-- but what most people don't know is that some of his greatest stories of intrigue have been in his own life
Summary
The author of "The Day of the Jackal" and numerous other best-sellers traces the story of his life, detailing the high-risk experiences as a wartime Royal Air Force pilot that inspired many of his famous storylines
