FIGHTER BOYS: Saving Britain 1940

Bishop, Patrick
ISBN: 0006532047Category:


Sold Out

World War II. Patrick Bishop has written a detailed and poignant account of the dark
days of 1940, and the Hurricane and Spitfire pilots who stood between Britain
and the Luftwaffe.
Many memoir and diary entries are quoted to give us a real
impression for the feelings of these young men as they went into battle –
not just the gung-ho sentiments of the standard war movies.
Particularly touching were those pilots mourning the deaths of close
comrades; one man seeing the towel that his roommate had thrown casually
on the window sill that morning, little realising that he would never
return to pick it up to go for another shower.

An enjoyable read and a good testament to these bravest of men…
