Descripción

8vo., Second Impression; original blue cloth, gilt back, backstrip heavily sunned (but all gilt wholly legible), a good, clean working copy. Published in the same month as the first edition. Arguably the finest account of the Battle of Britain by a British fighter pilot. Hillary flew Spitfires out of Hornchurch with 603 Squadron and claimed five victories before being badly burned over the North Sea. An early member of the Guinea Pig Club, he was treated by McIndoe and returned to duty, but was killed shortly after in a training accident. The work was many times reprinted, but early issues are scarce. The US title is 'Falling Through Space'. Enser p.157 (recording the first edition). N° de ref. de la librería 17519
