VICTORY FIGHTERS The Veterans Story by Steve Darlow - Limited Edition


Winning the Battle for Supremacy in the Skies Over Western Europe, 1941-1945.

Victory Fighters is largely a collection of eye-witness accounts of the struggle that raged in the skies over occupied Europe after the Battle of Britain. Expertly selected and interwoven by Stephen Darlow, the book centres on the stories of six pilots and one navigator, the telling of which covers every aspect of this battle over land and sea.

The author describes and analyses the relevant command decisions from the highest level down and against this backdrop the men give their accounts from the start of their flying careers through to the preparations for Operation Overlord, the invasion itself, the liberation of France, the crossing of the Rhine to the end of the war in Europe on VE-Day.
