Signed by Sir Hugh Dundas 0n the title page in pencil

St Martin’s Press First US Edition, 1st printing 1989.  180 pages and 16 pages of photographs.

Fine condition hardback book in black boards with a Fine condition dustjacket. The US edition is practically identical to the British Stanley Paul edition except that it is made with higher quality paper which means it does not suffer from the browning that affects most Stanley Paul copies.  This book is fresh, bright and tight with a small and very discreet previous owner blind name imprint on a corner of the front end paper.

Hugh ‘Cocky’ Dundas was a Battle of Britain fighter ace.  He was Douglas Bader’s wingman, led a Spitfire wing in the invasions of Sicily and Tunisia and became the youngest ever Group Captain in the RAF at the age of 24.  After a distinguished post war business career he was knighted in 1987 and died in 1995.

A very pleasing copy of an excellent signed Battle of Britain memoir.
