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.

  1. So I'm 17 and a senior in high school, anyway I have a Instagram about the US Military and it does well, I have about 3000 followers and I just post Badass pictures. Anyway i plan on enlisting in the Army after high school. I have a question, why do people make fun of the military?
