Spitfire Pilot

At the outbreak of the Second World War D. M. Crook was still undergoing his training. By the winter of 1939-40, he had his wings. Successfully applying to return to his Squadron, then on defence duties in northern England, Crook began to familiarise himself with their new fighter: the Spitfire. Following the Allied evacuation from France, Crook found himself facing the relentless sorties as the skies above Britain transformed into a battlefield. ‘Spitfire Pilot’ is a remarkable account of one officer’s life in 609 Squadron, the excitement, the anxieties and the camaraderie, during The Battle of Britain - one of the most famous battles of the Second World War.
