France, and the nightmare of Dunkirk, had turned George Yeoman into a veteran - an ace with several victories to his credit. Now he found himself fighting once more as the Luftwaffe hurled its might across the English Channel and the RAF's Spitfires and H u r r i c a n e s carved out the greatest air victory of all time over the harvest fields of southern England. But Yeoman had to face a different kind of battle too, a battle with his inner self, as he saw his friends go to their deaths one by one in t he c au ld ro n of that summer sky of 1940."
