Sean Anson

Born and raised in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. It was at secondary school where I discovered a love of history, especially war history, firstly in classics lessons with the stories of Homer's Odyssey and then in history where I was introduced to the epic raiding voyage of the SMS Emden in the Indian Ocean. From these small beginnings I began to read historical and fictional work mostly set in the Second World War and discovered true stories of amazing acts of bravery and valour. Through one of my many research books I came across the CAC Boomerang and the amazing story of its inception as an emergency fighter. My story is fiction and to the many brave men who fought in the campaigns included, I give my utmost respect and hope that I have written words worthy of their bravery.

About Book

Finding himself pitched into aerial warfare at the height of World War Two, Flight Lieutenant Benjamin ‘Pits' McShane, in coming to play his part in the defence of Great Britain from Australia, quickly adapts to all that is asked from him.

Benji rapidly climbs the promotion ladder and wins the respect of his equals and seniors. Training new pilots with new aircrafts, he very soon yearns to be back in Australia to help defend his home country from the Japanese.

Sean Anson relates the events in both the European and Far Eastern theatres of war in absolute detail. The reader is projected right into the cockpit, conjuring up the sights, sounds and smells of dogfights, bombing and of course, the human issues that the pilots leave behind when ‘on duty'.

‘Per Ardua Ad Astra' the motto of the Royal Air Force, is what this timeless story is all about. The pace of the action makes you live it... breath it... but not forget it.
