384 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). B&w photographs. "From the Battle of France to the Normandy invasion, from the defence of Malta to victory in the Pacific, (young Canadian) airmen fought with great courage in all theatres of the war. Signing up in every province and territory, and serving with both the RAF and the RCAF, they flew many daring missions in their Spitfires and Hurricanes, Kittyhawks, Mustangs, Typhoons, and Mosquitos. (The author) tells the stories of Canada's fighter heroes, using their own wartime correspondence and later memoirs to capture the gripping atmosphere in the cockpit as they waged war in the air. Near-legendary names like Stocky Edwards, Buzz Beurling, and Moose Fumerton recount tales of fierce dog-fights, dramatic victories, and narrow escapes, as well as stories of squadron life, leave in London, budding romances, homesickness, and the tragic loss of cherished friends." Small bump at bottom of front hinge, small light soiling mark on fore-edge of text block. Dust jacket has light rubbing, very light edge wear, wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, two tiny edge tears archivally taped.
