Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Absolutely any amount of money is worth spending to get a copy of this wonderful album, it features the tales of air combats from the greatest part of our history;The Battle of Britain. The accounts are by the pilots themselves;men like Bader, Tuck, Ginger Lacey and Nicolson V.C. The stories are amazing, more so as some, like Richard Hillary`s voice was lost to us forever during the war as are some more on the BBC archive recordings. There are also accounts from the cliffs of Dover where an air battle was in full view of the live recording commentator, Charles Gardener. Hear the Bangs of the Anti aircraft fire and the guns going on the Spitfires and Hurricanes.

It is remarkably nostalgic and will bring a lump to your throat if, like me, you are proud of what these men achieved in 1940 in stopping Hitler invading and amongst other things, giving me the freedom to write this review.

544 men paid for our freedom with their lives. This, if anything of ours, is worth your memory.

At a time when there are less than 100 of The Few still alive, and at the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain, THIS, along with another BBC CD "From The Archives" allows you to hear from the men themselves. This does NOT glorify war - it gives you both the official AND the actual feel of 1940.

Highly recommended

Hearing the authentic voices of the incredibly brave and often self-effacing men involved in defending Britain from invasion was a very moving experience. This, together together with the informed and well-delivered commentary, should make this a "must listen" for all the generations who came after, particularly young people saturated by so-called "war games" and often totally ignorant of the deprivations of the generation growing up through the forties.
