The title of this book no doubt tells you what it is about. The name “Spitfire” first became a household word during the “Blitz” of last year, but before this these wonderful aircraft had given us valiant service at Dunkirk.

In this book I have set down the experiences of a pilot in a fighter squadron—myself. I have been with the squadron since the beginning of the war, first as a flight commander and later as C.O., and I never wish to meet a grander bunch of blokes. We went all through Dunkirk and the “Blitz” which followed a couple of months later, and in telling my story I have tried to answer the question of the man in the street: “What is it like up there?” and to give you an idea of what a fighter pilot feels and thinks as he fights up there in the blue.—From Author’s Preface

The anonymous writer of this excellent memoir of the Battle of Britain was in fact Squadron Leader Brian “Sandy” Lane, an exceptional pilot and recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross.
