Ron Pottinger started the war as a rifleman in the Royal Fusiliers, then transferred to the Royal Air Force, where he began flying the 7.5-ton Hawker Typhoon. He flew dozens of dangerous ground attack missions over occupied Europe through bad weather, heavy flak, and enemy fighters before being shot down and taken prisoner. I could see a carpet of twinkling lights from the ack ack all along the rail sidings which bordered the canal. I dove onto these with my cannons going. Then suddenly, when the attention of all the guns turned on me, I realised how foolhardy I was being. I ran the guns along the row of rail trucks - opened the throttle wide and pulled straight up for the clouds - with tracers crossing in front and on all sides of the plane. Ron W.

The acclaimed painter’s memoir of his experiences as a fighter pilot during WWII includes original illustrations and satirical cartoons by the author. Renowned as the world’s foremost painter of railroads, Howard Fogg’s career spanned half a century and some 1,200 paintings. However, few are aware of his prior career as a fighter pilot in the US 8th Air Force during World War II. Fortunately, Fogg left behind a detailed diary, which illuminates this brief but exciting chapter of his life at the controls of P-47 Thunderbolts and P-51 Mustangs. Fogg’s diary is presented here in its entirety, offering a candid glimpse into the life of a fighter pilot, both in the sky and in wartime England. Written in 1943-44, it offers an intimate perspective on his seventy-six combat missions, for which he was awarded the Air Medal with three clusters and the Distinguished Flying Cross. Speaking on personal details of a pilot’s day-to-day life, Fogg also discusses air combat and the strategic and political decisions that influenced the course of the war. Fogg in the Cockpit also includes supplementary material by Richard and Janet Fogg, as well as illustrations by Fogg himself, including satirical cartoons and military and railroad artwork.
