Product Description:

During the summer of 1940 Britain stood alone defying the Luftwaffe's aerial assault - the prelude to a proposed seaborne invasion. Fighter Command faced this challenge against overwhelming odds with immeasurable courage and tenacity the Prime Minister Winston Churchill immortalising these young Spitfire and Hurricane pilots as 'The Few'. Some 2927 aircrew comprised the 'Few' 544 of whom made the ultimate sacrifice that fateful summer now known as the Battle of Britain. A further 791 would perish before the war's end. Today precious few indeed remain alive worldwide the Battle of Britain Fighter Association now numbering twenty-seven. Veteran aviation historian Dilip Sarkar however has spent a lifetime recording the stories of casualties and the memories of survivors. In this important book commemorating the Battle of Britain's seventy-fifth anniversary he brings us more original work and new interviews with 'The Final Few'. This is likely to be the last such work produced as sadly but inevitably Churchill's 'Few' fade from living memory.
