Brookes, Andrew.


1st ed., Thus, 1995. 270 pp., 167 photo-ills., ills., + plans. D.j., 30 x 22cm. Tiny bump to front corners o/w Nr.FINE. This volume is an amalgamation of two separate titles on fighter and bomber squadrons from the successful Ian Allan 'At War' series. The author evokes what it was like to serve in the RAF in a combat squadron during the Second World War and he has chosen units that had a particularly exciting record. This book contains firsthand combat accounts and previously unpublished photographs. Through the medium of reports, letters, diaries and mementoes that members of the squadron left behind, we get a picture of how they saw themselves, and how others saw them.
