"This is an account of the working life of one of the thousands of young men who were caught up in the tide of war and whose lives were changed forever. This story, which encompasses the exciting days of the transition from war to peace in the Pacific; the air transport routes and the aircraft which flew them - from the DC3 to the B747; and the development of the New Zealand Civil Aviation Division, deserves to be told. It describes but one link in the endless chain of history, but surely for readers on the Pacific Rim, one of the most exciting and romantic links and one which brought the Pacific countries closer to the rest of the world." - foreword.
