At times funny and tragic, "Dancing in the Skies" is one of the few books I have read on WW2 fighter combat, that give the full picture. From the desire of one man to join the RAF to the point of actual combat, the books describes how quickly a pilot could become an ace or be doomed because of one signle mistake. The author also added a lots of details on how the RAF was opperating. Considering that the author ended up as an Ace with 8 confirmed kills, the fact that he was the only Icelandic pilot in the RAF makes the book only more interesting.

The author was the only Iceland ace in WW II, flying the RAF. This book was a bestseller in Iceland, and a long time before the author decided to make a translation, himself, to the British language. In doing so, he took out some parts of the book (like he says in the perface) because they would be a little bit boring to foreign readers. Anyway, it's a good reading, there is some action, good photos, amazing graphic quality of the printing.

THe writer did a great job, talking about his life in RAF during WW II. Life was cheap in those days, with fighter pilots relying in unpressurized, single-engined aircraft, flying them in any kind of weather over the North Sea, the Mediterranean and the Strait of Dover. Great.

DANCING IN THE SKIES is the touching narrative of the only Iceland pilot to fly with RAF in World War II. Serving the customary high numbers of Sqaudrons, he stayed most of the time with 111 Squadron, the famed Treble One. Then, at the end of the War he was transfered to Iceland and soon retired from RAF. Very good style, a real classic. Highly recommended !
