Summary "Eighty years after the Battle of Britain this vivid and dramatic book tells the story, in their own words, of six brave young men who fought courageously in the skies above England to prevent Hitler's invasion of Britain. This thin blue line in their Hurricanes and Spitfires were the 'few' to whom Churchill said the nation owed so much. It was, as one pilot's wife put it 'a queer, golden time,' when men in their teens and twenties fought each other in a brutal but still gentlemanly conflict. At stake was the very future of Britain"-- Provided by publisher.
