Some outstanding mysteries of the Battle of Britain investigated and solved

1940 in the skies over Britain was a time of courage, heroism and extreme danger. Many men gave their lives to keep our island free and some disappeared into the summer sky with no trace of them ever being found.

This remarkable book records the life of a dozen of these pilots shot down and killed but who remained missing for decades until diligent research and searches primarily by the author brought identification to them and closure to their families.

Each case represents a fascinating human story of humour, drama, love and tragedy; and each one represents a startling tale of detective work and remarkable coincidences, oft-times revealing controversy.

Finding the Few ends with a mystery still unsolved, has photographs throughout, and will stand as a fitting testament to those men lost but not forgotten.

By the author of Bader's Last Fight and Mannock VC


'I have been reading a chapter of the book each night and I have to you what a masterpiece it it! You have told a very tricky story, which was long overdue, without pulling any punches. You have written it all so well and fairly that I know I shall be very disappointed when I finish it.' Winston Ramsey, historian and author

'This is a book for those who want to remember the lives of men otherwise too long forgotten.' The Lady

'...a welcome addition to the treasury. This book, with nearly 200 pages, is an interesting work, and a fitting memorial to those who gave their lives.' Ashford Extra

'a remarkable publication ... highly recommended' Britain at War Magazine

'An interesting read ... it certainly stands as a fitting tribute and testament to those men who lost their lives.' Bygone Kent magazine

'I am awed by the very concept of your quest as well as the lucid way in which you unravel a complex narrative. Its an entertaining, moving and important book.' Terry Deary, author of Horrible Histories
