Kimber, 1st ed., 1984. 223 pp., photo-plates. D.j., 24 x 15cm. FINE. The author has selected twenty RAF fighter pilots of the Second World War to demonstrate their remarkable stories of bravery and to exemplify the wide diversity of individual characters. A few were familiar names to the contemporary lay public, but most received little or no public acclaim, being part of the silent majority which provided the real spine of the RAF’s fighter effort.
