    Simon and Schuster. First USA Edition, fourth printing 1970.  480 pages with photos and maps.

    Fine Condition hardback book in a near Fine condition dustjacket. Clean, tight and bright – it feels unread.  A really nice 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, this copy is enhanced by a characteristic Townsend inscription and signature dating from his book promotional tour of the USA in 1971.  A great copy.
