Well, John Burke might have had a lot to do with helping with the 1965 film on which Those magnificent men in their flying machines was based, but Ronald Searle has been given credit not only by Amazon, but other sources like the Book Depository was the actual author in May, 1965. Ronald Searle, who also wrote the wildly hedonistic St Trinian's series which delighted my teenage days, was an English prisoner of war after the fall of Singapore who survived horrors at Changi and on the Burma-Thailand railway by recording what was happening, despite malaria and worse horrors, and who died in 2011.

Ronald Searle was only coming up in relation to the movie in my searches, which itself inundated the results, wagga.
