During the summer of 1940, Britain stood alone, defying the Luftwaffe's aerial assault - the prelude to a proposed seaborne invasion. Fighter Command faced this challenge against overwhelming odds with immeasurable courage and tenacity, the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, immortalising these young Spitfire and Hurricane pilots as 'The Few'. Some 2927 aircrew comprised the 'Few', 544 of which made the ultimate sacrifice that fateful summer, now known as the Battle of Britain. A further 791 would perish before the war's end. Today, precious few indeed remain alive worldwide, the Battle of Britain Fighter Association now numbering less than twenty-five. Veteran aviation historian Dilip Sarkar, however, has spent a lifetime recording the stories of casualties and the memories of survivors. Here he brings us more original work and new interviews with 'The Final Few'
