Description - Fight for the Air by John Frayn Turner
This collection of popular air warfare stories covers the entire span of World War II, beginning when the Royal Air Force faced fascist forces on its own until the dropping of the Atomic bombs on the Japanese in 1945. Fight for the Air offers a rich mixture of accounts about such large and well-known battles and operations as the Battle of Britain, the huge Allied bomber raids over German cities, as well as more specialist operations such as the Dambusters. Individual feats of courage make for inspiring reading. The author's prose crackles with action and tension and his deep understanding of air warfare is obvious. These short stories give the reader an understanding of the global scope of air operations and their massive contribution to ultimate victory. AUTHOR: John Frayn Turner is a much published and respected author. He has numerous aviation books in print with Pen and Sword including 'Douglas Bader', 'The Battle of Britain', 'The Bader Wing' and 'The WAAF at War'. This is a companion book to Fight for the Sea. b/w illustrations
