From the rear side cover: In this entertaining autobiographical account, Dennis McCaig, originally from the Fiji Islands, tells of his eventful wartime experiences as a fighter pilot serving with 249 Squadron in Southern Italy 1943/44.
Known as ‘Fiji’ to his squadron colleagues, Dennis flew Spitfire Vs and later Mustangs on sorties across the Adriatic, tasked with locating and attacking 'targets of opportunity' in enemy-occupied Greece and Yugoslavia. He was even shot down over the Greek mountains and managed to evade capture, later rejoining his sqadron, before being shot down again over the Adriatic and this time being captured by the Germans.
