I recently purchased a few books from DS Solutions, military book department.

The first one I've read is an excellent biography of the life of Captain Eric "Winkle" Brown.
"Wings on my sleeve"
The greatest test pilot who ever lived!
 His story is quite amazing; taking him through WWII and testing more types of aircraft than anyone. from piston engines into the Jet era. 
He seems's to have been blessed with more lives than a cat! A truly wonderful read!

ISBN:978-0-7538-2209-8

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Yep, but as the saying goes: "Any landing you can walk away from was a good landing"!
