Rep., 1990. 224 pp., cold., frontis., + cold., + b&w photo-ills., + ills. D.j., 25 x 25cm. FINE. Cutting tipped-in. The Battle of Britain was played out in a dramatic 15-week series of aerial combats which have been too often re-told far larger than life. The Few, through its visual images and compelling recollections from Allied pilots, Luftwaffe pilots, ground crew and civilians, paints a true picture of the Battle, and of the Blitz, in life-size human terms. In a journey to the airfields and other locales, the book takes the reader back to wartime England through the memories of people who recall what it was like to be there and through vintage photos from scrapbooks and other private collections.
