Description
 
The summer of 1940 was supposed to be the beginning of the end of Britain. Europe had fallen to Hitler’s troops, & once the RAF was destroyed, Britain was next. But for 123 days, while Goering sent wave after wave of Luftwaffe fighters to rain down fire on Britain, 3,000 RAF airmen fought back. This riveting book presents the first account of this critical campaign told from the perspective of the pilots themselves. The pilots describe what it felt like when an engine exploded, a parachute failed to open, a swarm of Messerschmitts surrounded their plane, or a bomb fell on their home village. Under unimaginable pressure, those 19- & 20-year-old heroes brought down the world’s most powerful air force & saved their nation -- & the free world. Illustrations.
