    schema:description "This a fighter pilot's memoir of the four tumultuous years of 1938 to 1942. During this time he was first trained, then fought and survived in not one but two of the biggest aerial campaigns of the war, the Battle of Britain and the equally epic but less well known Siege of Malta. When the Germans were blitzing their way across France in spring 1940, Pilot Officer Tom Neil had just received his first posting - to 249 Squadron. Nineteen years old and fresh from training, he was soon to be pitched into the maelstrom of air fighting on which the very survival of Britain would depend. By the end of the year he had shot down thirteen enemy aircraft, seen many of his friends killed, injured or burned, and was himself a wary and accomplished fighter pilot. Out of the frying pan and into the fire, Tom was then shipped off to the beleaguered island of Malta to face a second Luftwaffe onslaught; again while heavily engaged he shot down another enemy fighter and was himself shot down and injured. Now ninety-five, he is one of only twenty-five Battle of Britain veterans still living and this vivid memoir is his last word on his fighter pilot experiences."@en ;
