Product Description

Product Description

In the summer months of 1940 a unique battle, later to be known as the Battle of Britain, was fought in the skies over Britain. Myth states that the pilots who fought this battle were of a certain class, all being public schoolboys or just down from University: this was not so.'The Few' as they came to be known, came from all walks of life. This book covers the lives of some pilots who were 'known' but, mainly, some pilots who were not 'known'. These men came from the northern counties of England. The men of the north who were a few of 'The Few'.

I have previously bought this author's 'A Gathering of Eagles':

So, having an interest in the subject, I thought I'd buy this too. However, it's pretty much the same content as 'Gathering of Eagles', almost word for word. So, if you have 'Gathering of Eagles', don't bother, as you'd be wasting your money.

Of course, if you don't, it is a very interesting book (or should that be books...??!).

Good reading although a person I wanted to read about was not in the book This was a bit disappointing as I know he was in the battle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Men of the North a Few of the Few. 15 Jan. 2013
By Jim Charles - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Excellent read I leaned of men local to where I am from doing their part in RAF. I grew up not far from Usworth airfield, I also learned how men fought and died, to save England during WW2
One point against is the fact that on my Kindle copy there are blank "pages" sometimes 6 or more between chapters, I am not sure if photographs are supposed to be on these gaps, but it is an irritation. Photos would have been a good addition to the book, maybe the print version has them.
