What to expect

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Death of an Old Old Man by Roald Dahl, read by Julian Rhind-Tutt.

In Death of an Old Old Man, Roald Dahl tells a brutal story of pilots and the terror of aerial combat.

Death of an Old Old Man is taken from the short story collection Over to You, which includes nine other dramatic and terrifying tales of life as a wartime fighter pilot, and is drawn from Dahl’s own experiences during the Second World War.
