On the 20th July, 1940, at 02:15 hours the first British aircraft, an Armstrong-Whitley bomber, was shot down over Germany by a new branch of the Luftwaffe–the night fighters.
And so began a new episode in the battle of the skies.
The author, a former Messerschmitt pilot, recounts his story of these war years–years of fear and of warm comradeship. He traces the story of the ace fighter pilots from the first development of radar by the Germans to the Battle of Britain.
In this thrilling picture of World War II, it is truly “fidelity to flying” that forms the bond between these acrobats of the air.
