Product Description

Publisher: Harper Collins UK

Author: Wing Commander Athol Forbes, D.F.C., Squadron Leader Hubert Allen, D.F.C., Jimmy Corbin

First published by Collins in 1942, this is an utterly compelling collection of first-hand accounts taken from ten fighter pilots, who, at the time of writing, were in the midst of the onslaught of fighting during the Second World War. Unsure of how or even when the war was to resolve itself, these ten young Spitfire pilots, all of 66 Squadron, offer an incredibly personal insight into war-time experience - both in the air and on the ground as one of the greatest aerial battles ever fought raged.
