Life as a Battle of Britain Spitfire Pilot

Availability: Out of stock

Author: Arthur Donahue, Editor - Hannah Holman

Summer 1940, Britain is on the brink, fewer than 3,000 RAF fighter pilots stand between Hitler’s Luftwaffe and air supremacy over the skies of southern England – the prerequisite for a German invasion.

What was it like to fly a Spitfire? To shoot down a German bomber over London? Or to be shot down by the closely matched Messerschmitt Me 109? This concise account of daily life in August and September 1940, written by a fighter pilot who fought in the Battle, is the ideal introduction to the story of the Battle of Britain. The book includes 43 contemporary colour and black-and-white photographs.
