Synopsis

Southern England. Late summer 1940. The nation is fighting for its very survival and the Luftwaffe's aerial offensive is unrelenting. All that lies between invasion and salvation for Britain is the 'thin blue line' of RAF Fighter Command and its pilots. This newly illustrated anniversary edition of Life as a Battle of Britain Pilot reveals what it was like to fly a fighter plane in the Battle of Britain. Who were the Spitfire and Hurrican pilots of 1940? How did they spend a typical day? And when pitched together in combat at 30,000 feet, which was the better machine - Spitfire or Me109? Read Lilfe as a Battle of Britain Pilot and then ask yourself: would I have been up to the job?

    To the point

    A great, easy read that gave you all the facts you would want to know about the Battle of Britain. Worth every penny.

    Accurayley describes what book is about.

    Very informative, describes pilots life in general, their feelings of the wait to call to action. However, there is a little to much detail to uniforms , etc. Otherwise very informative.

    Very basic

    A very basic overview of the Battle all of which you could discover on Google. More of a book for children.
