    Inhaltsangabe

    During the Second World War, Flt Lt Richard Stevens led an extraordinary campaign as an RAF nightfighter. Known to contemporaries as "Cat's Eyes" and by the height of his success in July 1941 as the "Lone Wolf", Flt Lt Stevens was the RAF's highest scoring nightfighter pilot with 14 victories.

    What makes his story unique is that all this was achieved without the aid of radar or another crew member. Instead, Flt Lt Stevens used extraordinary skill, instinct, and innate marksmanship. Described as "one of the greatest nightfighter pilots who ever fought in Fighter Command" by Sir Archibald Sinclair, Secretary of State for Air and with AVM B. E. Embry also crediting "his high standard of courage and skill as a nightfighter pilot" as a contribution to the final defeat of the enemy at night-it is not hard to see why Stevens was greatly admired by his peers.

    Thanks to over 20 years of painstaking research by Terry Thompson and a rich resource of documentation and photography, Andy Saunders is now able to tell the exceptional story of one of Britain's finest nightflying pilots of the Second World War. This extraordinary biography will be eagerly devoured by WWII military aviation enthusiasts and students of air warfare.
