    Clostermann s account of a suicidal mission his squadron of Tempests was sent on in the closing months of the war in Europe exceeds the speeder attack on the snow walkers in the beginning of Empire Strikes Back in terms of sheer visual awesomeness His squadron bursts from dense cloud cover to find itself over an airfield packed with German transports including Arado 232s about to carry personnel to Norway to esca...
