About the book:
Updated, expanded and revised, this third edition of Kenneth Wynn’s acclaimed book provides one of the most comprehensive and accurate sources of reference for each of the 3,000 or so airmen known to have fought with Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain.
Endorsed by the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust, this exhaustively researched book features not only the famous names who flew hundreds of sorties but all those who undertook fewer missions, including the airmen who were killed, sometimes on their first combat outing.
The book details their service records, their squadrons, ranks, promotions, decorations, nationalities and various victory successes, all updated with new material that has come to light over the three decades since its original publication.
Published in hardback with over 600 pages this extraordinary book has become a standard source of reference not only for historians and academics researching the Battle of Britain, but for aviation enthusiasts and collectors alike.
To transform this legendary book into a unique collector’s item, we’re delighted to offer the opportunity to enhance just a handful of copies with a spectacular original pencil drawing hand-crafted by leading aviation artist Richard Taylor.
Internationally regarded as one of the most gifted exponents of this fascinating genre, Richard will create a bespoke work of art in the front of each book employing his delicate pencil work embellished with his now ‘trademark’ coloured highlights.
