Andy Wright in his comments on this book clearly expresses my feelings regarding this book so I will try not to duplicate his words.
The notes to the chapters are excellent and confirm the quality of the research. 41 squadron was blessed with a variety of great fighter pilots and their personalities are not lost in the detail and research which dominates the text.
I look forward to the prequel to this book, dealing with the earliest WW2 years. Well done Steve this is a read which draws you in and you cannot help but become a ' 41' addict. I understand Blood Sweat and Courage is due out in December. Read this one now and you will be ready for the next!!

You know the times when you just have to sit back and take stock of what you see before you? Often, it is a good thing to be sitting down as the euphoria and awe that washes over you might be a bit too much! Such was the case when my copy of Steve Brew's epic work on No. 41 Squadron - Blood, Sweat And Valour - arrived in the mail.

Epic is an understatement but the only other word that comes close is "brick". At 980+ pages this book is simply massive yet, cleverly, maintains a manageable size in that it would not look out of place among the big hardback fiction books that top the bestseller lists. Fiction it most certainly is not of course. As one of two units to receive the Spitfire Mk XII in 1943, No. 41 Squadron and its EB codes are a familiar sight to RAF, Spitfire and WW2 afficianados. Exploiting the first Griffon-powered Spitfire in operational service to the hilt, the Squadron excelled particularly against the V-1 flying bomb threat.

However, while the Mk XII is perhaps the most famous 'face' of the Squadron post-Battle of Britain, there is a reason why this volume (effectively volume two) is so large. No. 41 Squadron was involved in just about every major operation that has since become iconic within the history of the RAF - Dieppe, D-Day, Operation Big Ben (anti-V2 ops) and the Arnhem landings. A ridiculously impressive service record that deserves a ridiculously comprehensive 'biography'.

This has been achieved with BSV and is an absolute credit to the tireless work of Steve Brew. He is the current historian for the Squadron and, beyond the valued relationships he has developed with current and past members, has a direct and proud link to the unit in that his great uncle was shot down and taken prisoner in 1941.
