Good read.

Maechel Anthony 'Mick' Ensor was one of Coastal Command's top patrol-bomber pilots of World War II. Many Coastal Command crews flew entire tours without sighting let alone attacking U-boats. In an almost unbroken combat career from August 1941 to war's end, Ensor sank two U-boats, damaged several others and sank various Axis ships as well. For his efforts, he was awarded two DSOs and two DFCs. Vincent Orange details the life and career of this intrepid New Zealander.

Enlisting in the RNZAF in June 1940, Ensor eventually found himself flying Blenheims with 500 Squadron a year later. Thankfully, the woefully inadequate Bristol bomber was soon replaced by the rugged Lockheed Hudson bomber which bristled with machine guns and carried a lethal loadout of bombs or depth charges. Ensor, an aggressive yet analytical pilot, notched up the first U-boat attack by a 500 Squadron crew in April 1942. Transferred to the Med, he sank U-458 on 15 November 1942. Ensor's depth charges, dropped at ultra-low level, almost destroyed his aircraft. Flying a fatally damaged aircraft, Ensor nursed it back to Allied territory where the crew bailed out; two died. Ensor was soon on his way to Coastal Command HQ where he helped develop more effective tactics and weapons to use against the U-boats. By July 1943 he was back on the sharp end, this time flying B-24s with 224 Squadron in the U.K. On 5 May 1945, he sank U-579. Postwar he flew Avro Yorks in Transport Command, Coastal Command Neptunes and Shackletons and held various staff positions. Sadly, Ensor's postwar career was marred by problems with alcoholism.

Author Vincent Orange does a fine job of bringing Ensor's story to life. The narrative benefits from Orange having the full cooperation of Ensor, his family and some of his squadronmates. The portrait that emerges from this Grub Street volume is one of an aggressive, determined, skillful and well-respected individual and combat pilot. The book is illustarted with rare photographs from the family's archives.

Coastal Command has never gotten the credit it deserved for the important role it played in the Allied victory. Orange's book goes far in redressing that wrong, highlighting, as it does, the outstanding achievements of one of the Command's best aircraft commanders. Recommended.
