Publishers Description: Nicky Barr was not a man who sought danger or adventure, but when he was confronted with it he had the courage to face it - and survive. In 1939, at the age of 23, Nicky Barr was chosen to represent Australia in the national rugby world tour. The day after the squad arrived in England, war was declared and the tour was cancelled. Nicky immediately signed-up to become a fighter pilot in the RAAF and quickly rose through the ranks to become a squadron leader while fighting Rommel's famed Afrika Korp in North Africa.
