"This book written by the legendary 'legless' ace Douglas Bader (immortalized by the film Reach For the Sky).
He tells the inspiring story of the Battle of Britain from the viewpoint of 'The Few'. Using superb illustrations he traces the development of the Spitfire and Hurricane and describes the nail-biting actions of those who flew them against far superior numbers of enemy aircraft. As an added bonus, other well-known fighter aces including Johnnie Johnson, "Laddie' Lucas, and Max Aitken contribute to Douglas's book, no doubt out of affection and respect.
This is a really important contribution to RAF history by one of the greatest - and certainly the most famous - pilots of the Second World War."
