Book Review 4

Winds of Destruction by Group Capt Petter-Bowyer

This Book as the title implies is a memoir of the Author's Life in the Rhodesian Air force. He was a career Officer and served through the span of the conflict. He was also instrumental in the development of certain munitions that where unique to the Rhodesians. Specifically Golf bombs and flechettes. Lot of good stories and background, I liked the book overall, It was a tad long 550+ pages and I honestly found the most interesting part was not about the Rhodesian war at all but about his time flying vampires in Aden as part of a British Commonwealth force. Allot of good info on the Air Force. Also, in print and on amazon for under $30.00. 31/2 stars.
