Roger Hall 152 Sqn-Clouds of Fear ( book).
Fri Feb 25, 2011 9:42pm

Clouds of Fear, the book by Roger Hall from 152 Spitfire Squadron is one of those Battle of Britain books where the author recounts his experiences of flying Spitfires during the Battle of Britain and also later in nightfighter Defiants. It is a marvellous and introspective book which contains some of the most remarkable descriptions of air combat I have ever read. However it is the honesty of the writer which is the most striking. Hall suffered from mental illness off and on, and "Clouds of Fear" is the story of a man not only fighting for his life in the skies but battling his own inner demons. A fascinating and vivid read and one which deserves buying.
