    You ave ever read

    By my side

    Storia dell’aviazione, by Bruno Ghibaudi

    I was 8 years old and that was the first book about aviation I was presented by my Aunt.
    It was 1960.

    Le grand cirque, by Pierre Clostermann

    I do not discuss the character, but I think that no writer can make you feel seated inside a WWII fighter as Clostermann does.

    Skunk works, by Ben Rich

    Fundamental and for me interesting not only as aviation enthusiast but also as an Engineer.

    I've only read one of them and that one a great read. It doesn't necessarily stick to the facts, but it's not that sort of book :)
