Battle of Britain Voices

Be the first to review this product

The quality of first-hand accounts left by the Battle of Britain fighter pilots is astonishing. Many were written in the midst of the epic air battle, a hastily jotted down diary, a contemporary interview with a journalist or a radio broadcast and, most poignant of all, the short books that were written to wile away the weeks stuck in a hospital bed whilst recovering from wounds received in battle. Some were written up in the cold light of day later in the war or just after, but they all share one feature they were written beforethe Few truly became etched in the mindset of the British people. The fighter pilots' modesty shines through.Battle of Britain histories often integrate gobbits of testimony from pilots, but this is the first book to collect substantial accounts to give a true idea of the exhilaration of being in a dogfight with a swarm of Messerschmitt 109s, the harrowing experience of being trapped in a burning cockpit and the mental stress day after day of the maelstrom of air fighting. Far better than any single narrative, thevoices build up a complete picture of the Battle of Britain as it was experienced by the men who took part in it.
