Duel of Eagles was a great book

Also look up the Guinea Pig Club. Amazing what was available at the time.

Pure dumb luck, and blind stupidity sometimes wins the battle.

Had a flyover of the Red Arrows in formation with a Spitfire in close trail today around 1000 in deepest darkest Wilts, wonder where they were off to.

My great uncle flew those in WW I. He got stitched in the back & shoulder in a dogfight and lost the use of his right arm.

He had the wooden prop until he died.

You wanna talk balls - those guys were like Yeager in the X1 - succeed or die, no other outcome possible.
