Chris Yeoman has written the definitive account of the life of one of RAF Fighter Command's top pilots and a leading Battle of Britain ace, Wing Commander John Connell Freeborn. What sets this book apart from so many others that cover this period in history is that Yeoman has refused to compromise in telling the story as Freeborn himself does. A straight talking Yorkshireman, Freeborn is not shy of offering an honest account of people and events, regardless of their status. He tells it as he saw it, as he lived it. As such this book comes highly recomended.
