    PDFEPUB Last of the Few PDF #229; Last of PDFEPUB ² #186; sharkmotorcyclehelmetscouk #186; last kindle, Last of free, Last of the Few PDF/EPUBIf you like military history this is a very remarkable book It is not a narrative history From cover to cover it consists of long and short 1st person quotes from RAF pilots recounting missions they flew during the 4 5 month long Battle of Britain It puts you in the cockpit with them day after day as they take off and fight wave after wave of German fighters and bombers To say it is riveting is putting it mildly With typically dry British humor they describe the chaos and confusion of fast dogfights victories defeats and getting shot down by enemy planes they didn't even see Through it you see their fears not so much of dying but of being badly wounded or perhaps badly burned or maimed Pressure? Tension? Nothing less than the survival of Britain and ultimately the war itself was on their shouders Yet they kept going and won the battle by holding off
