September 14, 10:17AM
The Battle of Britain - Simon Pearson will be talking about his latest book.
He paints a vivid picture of the men and their machines as the battle for air superiority over Britain is played out across the skies of Europe, from the west of Ireland to the German capital. We will experience the battle chronologically through the remarkable stories of seventeen airmen from across the world.
'A great read and a real eye-opener to anyone who thinks the Battle of Britain is only about Brits and Germans and Messerschmitt’s and Spitfires. The value in this account is also the way the back stories of many previously unheralded pilots come to life.' - General Sir David Richards, former Chief of the Defence Staff
