An Ordinary Hero: Story of David Goldberg, WWII Canadian Spitfire Pilot
We are very pleased to welcome local author David New as he speaks about his new book, An Ordinary Hero. In it he recounts the fascinating story of Hamiltonian Dave Goldberg, a WWII fighter pilot and recipient of the prestegious Distinguished Flying Cross medal. From his exploits in the European theatre of war, to his daring escape from the Germans through Spain after his plane was shot down in France, New relates Goldberg’s story as captivating as any thriller novel. In contrast to other books about the air battles of WWII, An Ordinary Hero focuses on the subjective: sights, sounds, emotions, feelings, thoughts. The thrill of flying. The horror of war. This is a special event that you won’t want to miss.
David New is a Hamilton writer and artist who has earned graduate degrees from both McMaster and Princeton University. He has taught at the university level and published several articles. An Ordinary Hero is his 4th book.
