Will Iredale joined The Sunday Times in 1999, working first on the foreign news desk and subsequently the home news desk, where he specialised in undercover investigations.

A gripping account of a virtually unknown drama. Will Iredale writes with verve and expertise to illuminate the story of the young men who lived and died at the fag end of the war in the battle against Japan in the summer of 1945. His story is laced with vivid anecdotes which wonderfully illustrate the character and calibre of the individuals who took up this great challenge. -- Jonathan Dimbleby A gripping account of British fighter pilots in the Pacific -- Rick Stroud, author of Rifleman
