Dudgeon's engaging account of the defence of the RAF Training School at Habbaniya. A notable victory achieved with the improvisation of meagure resources and near-obsolete aircraft employed against vastly superior Iraqi forces supported by a number of modern Luftwaffe aircraft. Dudgeon was a participant in this little-known but crucially important action which alone ensured the continuence of British military control in the region.
