Return of the Few

Return of the Few by Stephen Brown

The legendary Douglas Bader leads his famous Tangmere Wing back to base having been scrambled to intercept a German bomber formation.

It is 1941, the Battle of Britain is won but the country’s future is still by no means certain, with the Luftwaffe continuing to mount daily raids on cities, factories and airfields. Undeterred by losing both legs in a flying accident before the war, Douglas Bader’s charisma and indomitable spirit helped to inspire a nation facing a desperate fight for survival. He is remembered to this day as one of the greatest aviators to emerge from World War II.
