The Battle of Britain: 80th Anniversary 1940 - 2020

This highly illustrated book is packed with great stories of aerial combat and being shot down; of the classic fighters that they flew and fought in and against; of making and losing friends and colleagues; of a strained social life in the midst of battle; and, most of all, of standing steadfast in the face of overwhelming odds. Of those pilots who courageously flew their Spitfires and Hurricanes against the Luftwaffe barely a handful remain. The authors have interviewed no less than 18 survivors and it is their memories and anecdotes that make this book unique.
