Publisher's Synopsis

The thrilling account of the Typhoon FGR4s in the war against ISIS, from the RAF Wing Commander who led them into combat

'Adrenaline-fuelled. A rare insight into the high-pressure, high-stakes world of an RAF fighter squadron at war' JOHN NICHOL

'I eased the jet's nose down and rested my index finger on the trigger. Three seconds to go. Almost 500 knots. The whole airframe pulsed as I started to fire . . .'

Mike Sutton led the RAF's premier Typhoon squadron into battle against a brutal enemy. Flying the world's most advanced multi-role combat jet, every mission across the treacherous skies above Syria and Iraq saw him and his team tested to the limit. The threat of being shot down was a fact of life. Every split-second decision meant the difference between life and death.

Typhoon brings to life the exhilarating and exacting world of a fighter squadron at war like never before.

Strap in, light the burners, and hold on tight . . .

'A fabulous insight into the mind of an accomplished fighter pilot and leader as he takes on the biggest challenge of his career' FLYER

'Gripping, nerve-shredding, captivating, visceral, fascinating' DAILY MAIL
