Description: Robert Hale, London, 1978, reprint.. 160 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0709167334 "These are the stories of the young men who flew the Spitfires of World War II. Written in spare moments between missions, they are first-hand accounts telling of the mingled fear and exhilaration of the dog-fight, the strain of waiting and the sudden frenzy of action at the 'scramble' signal; accounts full of audacity and innocence, courage and wry humour. The writers were not famous heroes, there were thousands l i k e t h e m with similar tales to tell. But these are the stories of Matthew, Derek and the rest of the men of Buster Squadron. The editor has appended to each story a short indication of the sort of man each pilot was: his background, his look s, h is te mp er am e nt, and in far too many cases his fate. But the men speak for themselves, and vividly recreate Britain's finest hour." Cigarette odor, minor edge wear to boards, book is lsightly cocked.
