Writer was Spitfire fighter pilot
4 July 2007 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Even more interesting is that Richard Hillary, who wrote the original short story, was a Spitfire pilot during the Battle of Britain who was shot down in 1940, and bailed out with extensive burns and was rescued by the Margate lifeboat.

He is better known for his book The Last Enemy, published in 1942 (filmed 1956), which describes his call up, experience, and recovery. He was killed on active service in 1943.

After three months of skin grafts, he was sent to the US in 1941 on a promotional tour to garner war interest, and did many radio talks, and had an affair with Merle Oberon. In the late 1990s, recordings of those talks (often quoting from the book) surfaced, and were included in a Channel 4 drama/documentary (Oxford Film and Television) in 2000 called Richard Hillary: A Fighter Pilot's Story.
