Pen and Sword Books are proud to be re-issuing this the only book that the legendary 'legless' ace Douglas Bader (immortalised by the film Reach For The Sky) wrote. He tells the inspiring story of the Battle of Britain from the viewpoint of 'The Few'. Using superb illustrations he traces the development of the Spitfire and Hurricane and describes the nail-biting actions of those who flew them against far superior numbers of enemy aircraft. As an added bonus, other well-known fighter aces including Johnnie Johnson, 'Laddie' Lucas and Max Aikten contribute to Douglas's book, no doubt out of affe

Stuka pilot by Hans Ulrich Rudel( Book )

2 editions published between 1979 and 2012 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Autobiography of WW2 Nazi pilot Hans Rudel the most highly decorated German serviceman of WW2, and the only one to be awarded the Third Reich's most prestigious medal which was specially created for Rudel by Hitler himself, the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Golden Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds. Shot down over 24 times, Hans Rudel is credited with destroying over 500 tanks, 2,000 ground targets, the Russian battleship Marat, two cruisers and a destroyer, and was so successful against Russian forces that Joseph Stalin put up a 100,000 rouble ransom on his head. His flying record of over 2,500 missions remains unmatched by any pilot since. Until his death in 1982 Hans Rudel remained a loyal supporter of Adolf Hitler, and he refused to denounce Hitler, or the Nazis, and believed that the war against Germany was created by powerful Jews and international finance. Hans Rudel remains a complex character, and arguably one of WW2's most heroic figures. This is the uncensored edition first published by his friend the British Fascist leader Oswald Mosley in 1948, and includes maps and photographs

The classic story of one man's indomitable courage and endurance. As a young sports-loving pilot officer, Douglas Bader (Kenneth More) loses both legs in a flying accident. Not only does he overcome his devastating differently-abled-ness, he goes on to become a Battle of Britain ace. In 1945 when three hundred aircraft fly in triumph over London led by a solitary Spitfire, the honour of leading the fly-past goes to Douglas Bader. This is the story of one of the few to whom so many owed so much
