A historically accurate first person narrative based on a real life war event. The book tells the story from the perspective of a young soldier as he fights his way through a particular significant conflict. The story itself is supplemented by an introduction with maps, kit lists, rations and illustrations, a centre section with actual photographs and an epilogue with the final map positions, fatalities and a note on the significance of the battle. This story is told by a Spitfire pilot, the RAF takes on the mighty Luftwaffe, and through a stunning combination of heroism and the technical superiority of the Spitfire, Hitler suffers the first defeat in what became known as the Battle of Britain.
