    303 (Polish) Squadron, RAF, was to emerge as the RAF’s top-scoring unit of the Battle of Britain. This book tells its story during that fateful summer of 1940: from formation amidst political wrangling, though training against a background of official suspicion and distrust, to its entry into combat at a critical period in the Battle. The squadron’s story is told through the pilots’ own combat reports and diaries, one of which uniquely captured the personal thoughts of the airmen through their own contributions. Superbly illustrated with many rare photos taken by squadron personnel at the time, this book offers a unique insight into the day-to-day life of an RAF fighter squadron during the Battle of Britain and allows the reader to draw their own conclusions as to the legend of 303 Squadron, fact or myth?

    I think this is one book I must get, along with the new book 'Josef Frantisek - The True Story'.
    Thanks Dominic.
