In June 1940, at the age of twenty, Bob Doe believed himself to be the worst pilot in his squadron. Just three months later he was a highly decorated hero of the Battle of Britain. This is the story of the pilot who, in his own estimation, was not promising material for a fighter pilot. He left school at fourteen and had none of the qualifications or background of his fellow officers. But he found his place in the Battle of Britain, shooting down fourteen enemy aircraft and sharing in two others (he was the third highest-scoring pilot of the battle). He was unusual in achieving these victories in both Spitfires and Hurricanes. This biography, written by his daughter, a noted professional historian, tells the story of Bob’s remarkable career as a fighter pilot. At its centre is the Battle of Britain, but it also includes the plane crash in 1941 and the life-changing burns he suffered and his time in Burma leading an Indian Air Force fighter squadron for which he was awarded his DSO.
