Description
The author of the popular histories Fighter Boys and Bomber Boys here gives us a riveting chronicle of the epic struggle between the Royal Air Force and the Luftwaffe in the 1940 Battle of Britain. From the shocking defeat of the British army and their evacuation from Dunkirk in late spring to Fighter Command's assertion of superiority over the Luftwaffe in mid-September, Patrick Bishop takes the reader day by day through that harrowing summer, revealing the effects of the ongoing airborne conflict on flyers and civilians alike. Eyewitness accounts, diary extracts, and pilot profiles of aces like Douglas Bader, "Paddy" Finucane, and "Ginger" Lacey vividly evoke the often horrific reality of air combat.
