pilot in WW2, but in a completely different theatre of war from his last book 'Kittyhawk Down', the fact-based story of an RAF pilot in the desert. Luftwaffe pilot Paul Ratz crash-landed his FW190 in
July 1943 on the Leningrad Front and the aeroplane wasn't found until 1989. 'Vermisst - Paul Ratz & his FW190' will be published later in 2021. Meanwhile, 'Kittyhawk Down' has received some
great reviews so far. It is available as a paperback or as an ebook for your phone or tablet via Amazon, Googleplay, or direct from the publishers. The never-before-told story of missing pilot Dennis
