A few years ago I had the pleasure of working with Roger Cole to publish his book ‘High Flight – The Life and Poetry of Pilot Officer John Gillespie Magee’. John was a Spitfire pilot during the second world war and author of the famous poem High Flight (‘Oh I have slipped the surly bonds of earth …) The British Film Company are currently working on adapting the book as a feature film and have just released this wonderful presentation of the poem. I suggest a big screen and sound up!
Fighting High are releasing a paperback of High Flight on the 10th June and you can pre-order author signed copies via https://www.fightinghigh.com/collections/fighter-pilots/products/high-flight-paperback. ‘High Flight’ is also available as an ebook, with links to sellers via https://www.fightinghigh.com/pages/ebooks
