Weidenfeld & Nicolson. First Edition, first printing 1970. 455 pages with photos and maps.
A Very Good Condition hardback book in blue covers which have some light spotting in a Near Fine condition bright unclipped dustjacket which looks smart in its protective cover.
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 considered to be one of the best and most readable books about the Battle, a signed copy of the true British first edition is a scarce volume.
