No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Flight Lieutenant Frank Clark died in a fiery collision between two Spitfires in the war-torn skies over Normandy. He left behind a one-year-old son and a thirteen-year-old brother. These two had an intense interest in trying to piece together the life and times of Frank Clark. However, there was no stash of photographs, no neat pile of letters, no log book, no diary. Then serendipity stepped in. A dozen photographs of Frank came to light and a cache of 50 letters written to his best friend. These letters revealed a colourful, flesh and blood person whose youth, vitality and good humour sprang out from the pages. This book is that story.

Dave Clark was only 13 when his older brother was killed in a Spitfire seven days after D-Day. Years later, when he retired, he realized how little he knew about the circumstances of the tragic death and set about gathering research material. He went to the UK and France, built a web site and corresponded with veteran pilots. Four years later he had enough material to write a book— Angels Eight – Normandy Air War Diary — but he still didn’t know his brother. A serendipitous phone call brought into his possession 50 letters written by his brother before his death. Suddenly, a dim memory became a flesh and blood person. This new book is Joe's Letters.
