Product description

Review

An adrenaline-fuelled, gripping account that puts you right in the cockpit of one of the RAF's most modern combat aircraft. Typhoon is a rare insight into the high-pressure, high-stakes world of an RAF fighter squadron at war -- John Nichol

Few war memoirs achieve lasting popular acclaim . . . The exceptions are the ones that tell timeless truths about, usually men, in battle and its human costs - Stephen E. Ambrose's Band of Brothers and Paul Brickhill's Reach for the Sky spring to mind. Mike Sutton's Typhoon may well be anotherRAF News

Visceral . . . CaptivatingDaily Mail

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

About the Author

Mike Sutton led 1(Fighter) Squadron into action against ISIS in 2015. An RAF fighter pilot for 18 years, he flew the Jaguar strike jet before becoming an instructor on the first RAF Typhoon multi-role attack squadron. During his time as a tactics instructor he conducted a live scramble in response to a potential terrorist hijacking and served on operations in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria. He left the RAF as a Wing Commander aged 39, and now flies commercially providing operational readiness training for the UK armed forces. He was awarded the OBE in 2017.

Thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish! I had the pleasure to share some of the experiences my former Boss wrote about in the book, his account of the events on operations are fascinating! A totally immersive read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading
By Alex on 5 December 2021
A cracking, often thought-provoking insight into modern aerial warfare, with a detailed look at the processes behind it. The author offers much personal & often relatable reflection as the journey from absolute novice to battle-weary, seasoned campaigner is mapped out with much erudition.
Really a modern-day version of any top WW2 diary.
