Fight For The Sky, which Pen and Sword Books are honoured to re-publish in a completely fresh format. Invalided out of the RAF in 1933 after losing both legs in a flying accident, Bader rejoined in 1939. In a short time despite his disability, he became a national legend flying both Spitfires and Hurricanes with remarkable success and proving himself to be a charismatic leader of the highest order. In August 1941 his luck ran out and he was brought down over France becoming a prisoner-of-war.

Fight For The Sky traces the service of these two great fighter aircraft which became as legendary as the Author himself. The Battle of Britain in 1940 is a crucial chapter in this story but there are many others. The book benefits hugely from the vivid experiences not just of Douglas Bader himself but his fellow pilots, many of whom contributed to this unique record.

Although Sir Douglas Bader died in 1982 and the Spitfire and the Hurricane are now treasured collectors items, Fight For The Sky is a thrilling and vivid reminder of just how much we all owe to these superb aircraft and the gallant young men who flew them to victory.
