This is a first edition and a personal record of the Battle of France. It was written anonymously when published in 1941 as the author was very much in the front line, serving with no. 1 Squadron. The author was subsequently killed in action and his name was released as Paul Richey. This gripping book is a personal account of the Battle of France from September 1939 to June 1940 when the author was flying Hawker Hurricanes. The book is perfusely illustrated with original black and white photographs of his fellow pilots Killy, Prosser, Boy, Moses, the Doc and others! It also has pictures of the aircraft, airfields and combat. The book has its original dust jacket with just minor damage and is in generally very good condition. A great read as well as an excellent reference book for the aviation collector.
