‘A living, breathing monument to the fighter boys’.
In the summer of 1940 the future of Britain and arguably the free world depended on the morale and skill of a small group of mostly very young men. Their victory became celebrated as a classic feat of arms. But it was also a triumph of the spirit in which the attitudes and outlook of the pilots played a crucial part. Despite the importance of this select band, remarkably little is understood of its real character. Patrick Bishop’s superb, critically acclaimed new history reaches beyond the myths to convey with unprecedented force what it was to be a fighter pilot in war, peace, and love.
