Too Young to Die

Author(s): Bryan Cox

Second World War | Newly Arrived Through the Bookshop Door

Century Hutchinson, Auckland, 1987. Soft cover. Condition: Very Good. Tipped in list of NZ Pilots killed in 1944 and 45 overseas. Also some laid in ephemera. In this fascinating personal account Bryan Cox describes wartime flight training in New Zealand, operational Corsair flying in the Pacific, and 'occupational' flying duties in Japan at the end of the war - where he was an early observer of the horror of Hiroshima. 'Too Young to Die' is the first detailed account of RNZAF Corsair squadron activity although this involved more aircraft and personnel than any other sphere of New Zealand air operations during World War Two. It is also an account of the pilots - many just teenagers - and their families, and of friendships, sacrifices, anguish and fear.
