Description - Voices In The Air 1939-1945 by Laddie Lucas

A unique and enthralling anthology compiled by WWII flying ace, Laddie Lucas, Voices in the Air' tells the story of the air battles of the Second World War in the voices of those who took part. Drawn largely in the writings of the combatants themselves from all sides of the conflict, this book offers a vivid and highly individual account of the great aerial campaigns of WWII. From a thrilling account of the first sustained dogfight between Spitfire and Messerschmitt in 1940, to an eighteen-year-old Japanese suicide pilot's last letter home and the Luftwaffe leaders' analysis of 'what went wrong' after the Battle of Britain, the book dramatically deals with every aspect of the war. Full of stories of astonishing escapades, incredible bravery, dogged persistence and moving feats of arms, this book honours both the sung and unsung heroes of the war.
