RAF fighter pilot George Barclay kept a personal diary of his time flying Hurricanes and Spitfires in 1940 - 41, including his rare contemporary account of flying Hurricanes with 249 Squadron in the Battle of Britain. This revised and re-illustrated edition of a book originally published in 1976 features previously unseen photographs and ephemera from Barclay's personal albums, as well as offering new insights into his evasion in France and Spain in 1941. Barclay was later killed over El Alamein in 1942, shot down by German fighter ace Lt Werner Schroer. This diary is a rare, descriptive and articulate chronicle of the life of an RAF front-line fighter pilot in 1940 - 41.Biografía del autor:
