Robert Stanford Tuck. Fly for Your Life: The Story of RR Stanford Tuck. English (UK) · Русский · Українська · Suomi · Español.
Fly For Your Life is a simple story about a young man who did what he thought necessary, at a time when the whole world descended into madness and horror. He did so with incredible courage and skill and earned the gratitude and admiration of his generation and those coming after. The story is simply and matter-of-factly stated without being dry or hard to read. As World War 2 recedes into the darkness of history, it is still illuminating to read such a tale as this, if only to realise the contribution an ordinary person, such as Robert Tuck, could play in such an extra-ordinary event.
Wing Commander Robert Roland Stanford Tuck, DSO, DFC & Two Bars, AFC (1 July 1916 – 5 May 1987) was a British fighter pilot, flying ace and test pilot. Tuck joined the Royal Air Force (RAF) in 1935 and first engaged in combat during the Battle of France, over Dunkirk, claiming his first victories. In September 1940 he was promoted to squadron leader and commanded a Hawker Hurricane squadron. In 1941–1942, Tuck participated in fighter sweeps over northern France.

Excellent story about British WWII Ace Robert Stanford Tuck's life from a young teenager through the end of WWII. While well known in the UK, he is less known here in the States. The story covers his time at sea as a young man, flight training and the difficulties he had, his exploits during the Battle of Britain, getting shot down, life as a POW, his escape to the Russians, and finally his post war life. Bob Tuck was really one of 'the few'. I have read other books by Canadian pilots who portrayed him as a bit of a jerk so I felt that I should give him the benefit of the doubt and read his biography.
