WING LEADER is his account of the outnumbered fighter pilots who won the Battle of Britain, of the bitter fighting over Dieppe, and of the final battles across the skies of France and over the Rhine when, as a Group Captain, he commanded a British Wing of the latest and most powerful Spitfires.
WING LEADER is a magnificent story of fighter pilots - so graphic in its descriptions of aerial combat, so sympathetic in its portraits of fighting men that it will rank with the finest books which have come out of the war.
