FINE. 41 Squadron is one of the oldest RAF Squadrons still in existence. This, the first comprehensive study of the Squadron in World War II, initially concentrated on the period between August 1942 - May 1945 (Blood, Sweat and Valour) and owing to the success of this publication a further volume (Blood, Sweat and Courage) was written to complete the earlier narrative of No. 41 in the Second World War and this concentrated on its operations between September 1939 and July 1942. In both volumes the author recounts the unit's role within battles, operations, and larger strategies, and details experiences made by the pilots and ground crew participating in them. The Squadron's actions are often revealed for the first time, through records that were previously unavailable, intertwining facts with personal recollections. 2 VOLUMES :
