From the cover: “Forty-five years after its end, the Battle of Britain still influences the lives of many of those immortalized by Churchill as ‘the Few’. In this sympathetic and fascinating book, John Willis skilfully interweaves the colourful stories of six Battle of Britain pilots before, during and after the comb; to throw new light on the long-term consequences for individuals of this momentous episode. The book looks at Geoffrey Page, Cyril Bamberger, Bob Doe, Joseph Szlagowski, Geoffrey Myers and Ulrich Steinhilper — six idealistic young men from very different backgrounds whose lives were irrevocably transformed by one of the most dramatic battles of the Second World War.”
