041343 - MEN OF THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN: A Major New Tribute To The Few
By Kenneth G Wynn with a new Foreward provided by HRH The Prince of Wales
Since it was first published in 1989, Men of the Battle of Britain has become a standard reference book for academics and researchers interested in the Battle of Britain. This book records the service details of the airmen who took part in the BOB in considerable detail. Where known, postings and their dates are included as well as promotions, decorations and successes claimed flying against the enemy. There is also much personal detail, often including dates and places of birth, civilian occupations, dates of death and place of burial or, for those with no known grave, place of commemoration. This new edition will include new names and corrected spellings, as well as many new photos. Plenty of the entries have been extended with freshly acquired information. The stated nationalities of the airmen have been re-examined and, for example, one man always considered to be Australian is now known to have been Irish.
