Author(s): Kershaw, Alex
In the early days on World War Two, Britain stood alone against the Third Reich. its defence lay in the hands of the men of Fighter Command- The Few.
In Summer 1940, with the odds against them at their most daunting, a handful of American pilots arrived - in defiance of their own country's strict neutrality laws. Adventurers, farmhands, barnstormers, even an Olympic bobsleogh champion swapped the new world for grassy East Anglian airfields. This is their gripping story.
Based on diaries, first-hand accounts and interviews with British airmen, The Few offers a bold new perspective on the greatest air battle the world has ever seen.
