"I have read no book approaching this...in the vividness of its descriptions of air fighting...exhilarating and profoundly moving."--Daily Telegraph. Originally published anonymously in 1941, and republished eight times since, this was the first and finest story of a World War Two fighter pilot. The author's personal journal takes us into the action of the air battles preceding the fall of France. Beginning the day his squadron arrived in France, Richey's memoirs recount the unnerving lull right before the violence--and the fatigue of the Blitzkrieg, with its non-stop combat.
