"(Tony Bartley) joined the RAF at the outbreak of war and flew Spitfires with 92 Squadron from RAF Hornchurch, first in the Battle of France, then covering the Dunkirk evacuation. Later in 1940 the Squadron moved to RAF Biggin Hill which bore the brunt of attacks from German fighters and bombers. At the height of the Battle of Britain he flew daily over London alongside several 92 Squadron pilots who went on to fame such as Robert Stanford Tuck, Brian Kingcome and Don Kingaby. Bartley went on to test-fly Spitfires, then led 65 Squadron at Debden and 111 Squardron in North Africa. He flew with 70th Fighter Wing of the American 9th Air Force covering the Normandy landings at Omaha beach. (His) account relives the atmosphere of close knit fighter Squadrons, and also the respite offered by the London social life. Here he met the actress Deborah Kerr, who he married immediately after the war." Place, date and initials in ink on front free endpaper; book is slightly cocked; areas of light discoloration on boards; small shallow bump on fore-edge of both boards. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top of spine and flap-folds - one tiny tear, light rubbing, a few faint line indentations on panels.
