about

Victory Fighters is largely a collection of eyewitness accounts of the struggle that raged in the skies over occupied Europe after the Battle of Britain. Expertly selected and interwoven by Stephen Darlow, the book centers on the stories of six pilots and one navigator, the telling of which covers every aspect of this battle over land and sea.
The author describes and analyses th relevant command decisions from the highest level down and against this background the men give their accounts from the start of
their flying careers through to the preparations for operation Overlord, the invasion itself, the liberation of France, the crossing of the Rhine, to the end of the war
in Europe on VE-Day.

Through their eyes, the reader is introduced to a series of different tasks and situations, a multitude of aircraft types Sunderlands, Mustangs, Tempests, Typhoons, Spitfires, Whirlwinds, Mosquitoes and a great many squadrons.

Having conducted numerous interviews and undertaken diligent research of documents, diaries and correspondence, that author has produced a fitting testament to these men and the countless others they represent.
