The Battle of Britain, August 6th - September 15th 1940
Distributed for Uniform Press
Originally published in 1966, Eagle Day tells the story of those weeks and the men who fought and died to keep Britain free. Richard Collier, an RAF pilot himself, draws on more than four hundred eyewitness accounts to give us a startlingly close-up view of life in the air during the Battle of Britain. His accounts of that long moment when Britain's back was against the wall are unforgettable.
