There's plenty available for around £30. If you fly a tailwheel aircraft that is a small and valuable investment.

I have a copy, but it isn't something I would be in a rush to part with; it bears multiple re-reading

I know that for some it is the bible of tailwheel flying, however I found it so old fashioned in language that despite several attempts I never managed to read more than a few pages and sold it again.

A good tailwheel instructor will do the job. ;)

I see it is for sale on amazon.de with free shipping to the Germany, I hazard a guess the same would be true to Ireland. Amazon.de ship to the whole EU.

sadly Germany in their wisdom wont deliver that item to Ireland (looks like its been delivered from Amazon USA via Amazon Germany)

While the book is as you mention bit old fashioned, its more a nice one for my collection that I would like to grow for aviation

Also it will be a while before I am doing a tailwheel so its more a winter read.

The Germans delivered all sorts of unpleasant stuff to so-called neutral Ireland in WWII to the detriment of the Allied war effort.

I'm not surprised the Germans have switched sides yet again.
