Product Description

Product Description

`Shimmering in the morning sun, wave upon wave of bombers, driving for London. Stepped above and behind, the serried ranks of Messerschmitts. Covering mile upon mile of sky, as far as the eye could see. It was at once magnificent and terrible. I broke hard into attack, pulling the Spitfire into a climbing, spiralling turn as I did so…`

Read about the development of the Spitfire in Taking to the Skies; heroic anecdotes of the pilots in The Battle of Britain; and amazing aerial combat in Fighting Far from Home in this 3 in 1 True Combat Compendium. Three accounts filled with the courage of war, and interwoven with first hand narrative that takes you into the heart of battle.

Short, sharp, and true to life, Chronicles of War describe the campaigns, battles and close-up combat experiences of World War II in an exciting, quick to read format. Each title in the series provides gripping, intimate insights into the violent confrontations, extreme heroism and terrible brutality of the greatest conflict the world has ever known.



INCLUDED: Taking to the Skies. The Battle of Britain. Fighting Far from Home

More About the Author

Nigel Cawthorne is the author of some eighty books - and a major contributor to at least twenty more. He lives in a flat girlfriends have described as a book-writing factory in Bloomsbury, London's literary area, and writes in the great British Library, which is supposed to be one of the best pick-up joints in London. However, his reputation is such that people will tell you he is more often seen drinking in Soho's famous bohemian watering hole, the French pub - still known to some denizens as the Yorkminster - with a beautiful young woman on his arm.

2.0 out of 5 stars This isn't a book, rather a pamplet ...... 27 pages?????? 18 Feb 2013

I downloaded the sample and thought it was worth reading. I ordered the book without checking all the details (certainly my fault) but really...27 pages. That's pretty absurd. Not worth the cost. Oh, well I wont be caught like that again. I don't think it should even be listed with books. It is fairly interesting, if rather simple, just a listing of some daily events. It might be ok as one chapter of a book. Gee Nigel, your best effort?

A good read, detailing the early days of the Spitfire, the War years and its developing role throughout. Recollections of the pilots experiences provides an insight.
