Typhoon by Mike Sutton

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

'Dragon, we've got reports of a mortar firing team to the west of Mosul. We need you to redeploy now . . .'

Mike Sutton commanded the RAF's top Typhoon squadron across Iraq and Syria in the war against ISIS. Flying a Eurofighter Typhoon FGR4, the most advanced multi-role combat aircraft in the world, across treacherous skies, he was dodging ground fire, anti-aircraft artillery, and surface-to-air missiles.

Split-second decisions and actions made the difference between life and death in the air - and on the ground . . .

Typhoon tells the dramatic story of an air-combat squadron in action, putting you in the cockpit, hands gripping the controls, the sounds of battle crackling in your ears.

Buckle up!

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.
