The Story of a British and German Fighter Unit, August to December 1940
Both sides of the Battle of Britain are shown in a day-to-day, blow-by-blow account between 609 Squadron based in southern England and 1/JG53’ a Luftwaffe staffel based in northern France. The tense action of aerial combat and the relief felt by individual pilots surviving these encounters, the elation of a successful ‘kill’ and the tragedy of seeing a friend shot down highlight the common fears felt by airmen on both sides of the fight.
