Battle of Britain Combat Archive Volume 5 Now Available for Pre-Order!

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 at the printers and is available here on the website for pre-order.  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.

The book will be published on 19 June 2017, for more information please click HERE.
