More About The Final Few by Dilip Sarkar
 
 
 
Overview
During the summer of 1940, Britain stood alone, defying the Luftwaffe's aerial assault - the prelude to a proposed seaborne invasion. Fighter Command faced this challenge against overwhelming odds with immeasurable courage and tenacity, the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, immortalising these young Spitfire and Hurricane pilots as 'The Few'. Some 2,927 aircrew comprised the 'Few', 544 of whom made the ultimate sacrifice that fateful summer, now known as the Battle of Britain. A further 791 would perish before the war's end. Today, precious few indeed remain alive worldwide, the Battle of Britain Fighter Association now numbering twenty-seven. Veteran aviation historian Dilip Sarkar, however, has spent a lifetime recording the stories of casualties and the memories of survivors. In this important book commemorating the Battle of Britain's seventy-fifth anniversary, he brings us more original work and new interviews with 'The Final Few'. This is likely to be the last such work produced, as sadly but inevitably Churchill's 'Few' fade from living memory.
