Comments on book: Flight of the Few? by ms
I'm reading a fiction book on the Battle of Britain period in the RAF. The Flight of the Few, Richard Hough, 1979, ISBN 0-440-12771-8, Cassell Ltd. Anyone recall this author and is the book reasonably authentic? It seems so. He also wrote Wings Against the Sky, and Wings of Victory.
