Product description

Review

"This beautifully written book is a work of exceptional authenticity. The descriptions of life in the late 1930s and the intensity of the air battles revive many recollections and make for compelling reading." (Geoffrey Wellum, former Battle of Britain pilot and author of First Light)

"Full of wartime atmosphere. Once again I could see the vapour trails, hear the Spitfire engines and the lofty crackle of machine guns" (Leslie Thomas, author of Waiting for the Day)

"The ear-popping action sequences are tremendously exciting ... the pastoral scenes reveal a deep and genuine love of the countryside and its age-old traditions. Holland leaves one in no doubt what ordinary British folk were fighting for" (Sunday Telegraph)

"There can seldom have been a better, nor more detailed, evocation of exactly what it was like to fly - and die - in the clear blue skies above the English Channel in those heady days in the summer and autumn of 1940" (Daily Mail)

"He has joined the few who can bring history to life" (Guardian)

Book Description

An epic story of love, loss and friendship, set against the powerful backdrop of World War Two, from the dogfights of the Battle of Britain to the deserts of North Africa. A gripping war book from the Sunday Times bestselling author of Fortress Malta: An Island Under Siege, The Burning Blue is a must-buy for fans of Sebastian Faulks and of Rosamunde Pilcher's Coming Home.
