A Hurricane Pilot’s Dramatic Story of the Battle of Britain

Autor: Tom Neil
Strany: 320
ISBN: 9781848688483

This is a fighter pilot's story of eight memorable months from May to December 1940. When the Germans were blitzing their way across France, Pilot Officer Tom Neil had just received his first posting – to 249 Squadron.
Nineteen years old, fresh from training at Montrose on Hawker Audax biplanes he was soon to be pitchforked into the maelstrom of air fighting on which the survival of Britain was to depend. By the end of the year he had shot down 13 enemy aircraft, seen many of his friends killed, injured or burned, and was himself a wary and accomplished fighter pilot.

Tom Neil joined 249 Squadron flying Hurricanes just before the start of the Battle of Britain. His first victory was an Me109, followed in quick succession by 12 others. Tom was awarded a Bar to his DFC in November 1940. Later he served in Malta where he gained another victory. His other books include Fighter In My Sights, From the Cockpit: Spitfire, Questions of Guilt: The Stories of Wing Commander Tom Neil and Onward To Malta: Memoirs of a Hurricane Pilot in Malta 1941 (which has sold over 10,000 copies).
He lives with his wife near Bungay in Suffolk and has three sons, two of which carry on the tradition of flying.
120 illustrations (50 in colour)
