Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A though provoking book, telling the story of the fighter pilots who fought and saved Britain and the Free World in wartime. Johnny Freeborn and many new relatively unknown pilots are here and their stories will now be told to a new generation. A well written book by a Master Historian and one who has met many of these men and interviewed over 30 years. Paul Davies

5.0 out of 5 stars many aces like Malan, Johnson, 19 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A treasure trove. Pilots speaking in wartime broadcasts, many aces like Malan, Johnson, Ryder and others as well as sounds of Merlins, combats over Dover and the Channel recorded live complete with bombs going off, and guns firing. Will leave you stunned to silence at the end. Churchills speeches of The Few summed up how these men saved Britain in 1940. This is their story in their own words and sadly the last we will hear of them as many did not survive the war or have passed on since. Paul Davies Battle of Britain Historical Society

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A superbly written book, sadly relating the end of an era. The Battle of Britain pilots stories as interviewed by Dilip who has met more aircrew and written more words about these men than any other author. Much that is new is here and some humour also. He is regarded highly as an historian by these men and this comes across in the book. Paul Davies BoBHS


My Part of the Sky: A fighter pilot's firsthand experiences 1939-1945
My Part of the Sky: A fighter pilot's firsthand experiences 1939-1945
by Roland Beamont
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant fighter pilot, 19 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A brilliant fighter pilot, an ace of the Battle of France and Britain 1940. Later a Wing Leader of Tempest and Typhoon Squadron who destroyed 31 v-1 Doodle bugs on his own as well as 8 enemy aircraft, many ships and ground targets. Later he became the Chief test pilot for British Aerospace (English Electric/BAe) and flew prototypes of Lightning, Canberra, TSR2 and other aircraft. I saw his final flight low, between the aircraft sheds of the BAe airfield he was saying goodbye to before zooming, Saturn V like up through the clouds, trailing his thunder. Sadly, men like him are rare now. Great book, well written and full of new stories not covered in earlier books by the same author.
