Two new(ish) books on the Royal Canadian Air Force
I recently ran across a web article on the Air Command website entitled "One's a mystery, one's a miracle" discussing two recent publications in the history of the Royal Canadian Air Force. The first book, Lost in War: The Brave Life and Mysterious Death of a Canadian Airman, by James T. Watt (Orillia, ON: Troutspawn Pub., 2006), deals with the career of Sergeant Henrik Guttormson, killed in action on 5 March 1945. The second book, Gold Medal "Misfits": How the Unwanted 1948 Flyers Scored Olympic Glory, by Pat MacAdam (Ancaster, ON: Manor House Pub., 2007), tells the story of the 1948 Gold-medal winning RCAF hockey team.
