Just finished this book, It is a must read for anybody interested in the RAF and the Battle of France/Britain.

The author has captured the spirit of the airforce at that time and explains in great detail the formation of squadrons and the techniques of training and fighting in that period. The author has looked at the personal aspect of the battle from the views of the people fighting and not the usual aspect of an overall war.

A truely powerful read that had me gripped from opening the front cover untill the last page.

Just finished "Fighter" by Len Deighton. A very concise historical account of the BB, it's fighters, men and politics from both the German and British sides. More a historic record than a first hand experience but with contributions from flyers of both sides as well as comments from Albert Speer Hitlers Minister of Armaments. A brilliant read.

Fighter Boys next on the list with a follow up of "One of the Few" .

Try to get hold of "Spitfire on my tail - a view from the other side" by Ulrich Steinhilper - it's fascinating how similar the attitudes and experiences were.

Yes, Fighter Boys is a great read. Working for a National Charity takes me round several of our shops in our area, and I spotted this on a shelf a year or so back. Well worth the 50p I paid for it. The hard hitting first hand accounts certainly keep you reading.......

Highly recommended if WW2 RAF history is your bag. yes
