The Life of Battle of Britain Fighter Ace, Wing Commander Tom Neil DFC* AFC AE

This is the thrilling account of the final remaining Battle of Britain ace fighter pilot, Tom "Ginger" Neil. Neil was one of an elite band, nicknamed "The Few" by Winston Churchill, he flew Hurricanes during 141 combat missions in that battle and went on to command the first Spitfire XII squadron during 1942/43 as the RAF went on the offensive in north-west Europe. In this, the only full account of Neil's life to be published in collaboration with his family, we learn how he became a poster boy for the war effort and how he credits his "sixth sense" for keeping him alive during the Second World War.
