Barney Barnfather by Angus Mansfield
Book DescriptionBarney Barnfather was an RAF fighter pilot. He flew Spitfires in action almost continuously from November 1941 until the end of the war in Europe. Barney was often in the thick of the fighting and saw action in the offensive sweeps over France, in the desperate air battle for Malta, the fighting in North Africa, the invasions of Sicily and Italy, and finally on the fringes of the Third Reich over Austria in 1945. He wasn't an ace, although he did shoot down several enemy aircraft, but he was an experienced and brave 'trooper' of the kind who formed the backbone of Fighter Command and who was fortunate to survive the war.

Author Biography - Angus Mansfield
Angus Mansfield is a bank manager based in Bristol. He has long been interested in military aviation, but a particular interest was sparked by his late grandfather's flying log book which was passed to him by his grandmother. The entry for 1 December 1943 started him off: 'News of Sarah's birth arrived today so we had a party. Good grief what a shambles!! A wizard show all round.' Sarah is Angus's mother and this is his first book.
