Product description


For better or worse, we have needed wings and skilled, swift airmen and women to wear them. Mr Bishop leads us brilliantly through these violent skies. * Country Life * Magisterial sweep and range are combined with succinct and lucid analysis, all in prose as crisp as fresh lettuce. * Daily Express * Highly recommended * Military History Monthly * In this superb, pacy, often moving portrait of brave young men and women maintaining their sang-froid against hopeless odds, Patrick Bishop has done full justice to this subject, and confirmed himself as one of our finest popular military historians. * Mail on Sunday * A soaring, blazing sortie through a century of RAF aerial warfare told with the precision of a Spitfire turning into the attack, and etched with prose as clear as contrails in azure blue skies. * Jonathan Glancey *

About the Author

Patrick Bishop has been a foreign correspondent since 1982, covering numerous wars and conflicts around the world and he has reported from the front line of almost every major war of our era. In the last six years he has emerged as a military historian of the first order with his top-ten bestsellers Fighter Boys and Bomber Boys, which cast new light on the men who fought in the Battle of Britain and the Strategic Air Campaign against Germany. He is also the author of the much-praised Battle of Britain and 3 Para.
