Battle of Britain Voices - Jonathon Reeves
This review has been published in Soldier Magazine
Title: Battle of Britain Voices
Author: Jonathon Reeves
Publisher: Amberley Books
Voices is an excellent descriptor for this book as it is a series of
vignettes relating the stories of the men who fought as pilots in the Battle of
Britain. As the veterans of this war rapidly ‘Go West’, these type of books
serve as the repositories of their memories and legacies. This style of book
may be read and put down without loss of storyline or place; each chapter is
its own unique story. Well edited and presented, it flows well and covers the
gambit from training to flying, combat to play and youthful exuberance to
thoughtful insight. A window into a vanishing world.
