He bluffed his way into the RAAF, then made sure that he was posted to exactly where he thought he should be.

His ability was unquestioned by all those around him, and he devised the vital shadow shooting technique which contributed so much to Allied success in the air in the north African campaign, and in northern Australia. But he was never afraid of voicing his opinions to all those above and below him, be it about the training of pilots, or the equipping of Spitfires for use against the Japanese - and for trying to run the show his way...

Caldwell ended his military career in the Morotai Mutiny in 1945, where he and a number of other Australian pilots tried to resign their commisions in protest at not being allowed by General MacArthur - and the RAAF - to take part in the main action. And then he was embroiled in the Barry inquiry into booze smuggling by him and other pilots... KILLER CALDWEL is a colourful portrait of a colourful Australian.
