Simon and Schuster. First USA Edition, third printing 1970. 480 pages with photos and maps.
Fine Condition hardback book which is clean, tight and bright. The Good condition dustjacket has some closed tears and repairs but is complete and looks smart in its protective jacket. A nicely signed copy of this iconic Battle of Britain book.
A detailed analysis of the events leading to the Battle of Britain and an account of the Battle itself told by a Hurricane Squadron Commander who was in the thick of the fighting with 85 Squadron.
Still one of the best and most readable books about the Battle and a flat signed copy is hard to find.
