The acclaimed biography of Victor Beamish, the legendary Irish station commander during the Battle of Britain, who flew more operational sorties than the much younger men under his command. Beamish was a star cadet and sportsman at Cranwell and an aerobatic ace with the Royal Canadian Air Force but tragedy struck as he was invalided from the RAF with tuberculosis in the early 1930’s. With immense courage he fought his way back to full fitness and re-entered the RAF just before the outbreak of World War II.
