Battle of Britain Combat Archive Vol 5 NOW IN STOCK

After a supreme effort by all members of the production team, we are delighted to announce that Battle of Britain Combat Archive Volume 5 is now in stock. Despite covering only three days, (16th – 18th August 1940), and despite nothing happening on 17th(!), this book had so much material to include that again we’ve had to extend the number of pages to 144 as with Volume 4. Covered in this book are subjects like the death of US pilot Billy Fiske, the Stuka dive bombing of Tangmere, the low-level Kenley Raid and of course the award of the VC to James Nicolson. Regarding the latter, we publish for the first time the full facts behind this most famous of combats and also identify the German pilot most likely to have shot him down.

All pre-orders will go out on Monday and Tuesday (19, 20th June) so UK orders should arrive before the end of the week. To order a copy click HERE. Or alternatively, you can order the first FIVE volumes as a set by clicking HERE
