Publisher's Summary

In that unforgettable 1940 summer known as the Battle of Britain, the date September 15th stands out as the day the tide of war turned. Two massive waves of German bombers and their fighter support set upon the defences of London. They were met with the complete, unleashed commitment of Fighter Command.

This gamble, against all the odds, achieved a stunning defeat against the might of the Luftwaffe. But if the 2nd attack wave had come earlier, even just a half an hour soone, the RAF's entire fighter defence might have been caught refuelling and arming down on the ground. What if more than mere chance was involved in that delay?

This novel is about that one, silent hour which may have been purchased at an unknown cost.

    "A Great Story of War and Love"

    I really enjoyed this story of war and love in a Spitfire squadron in World War II. Very much in the spirit of Nevil Shute, the store is narrated in retrospect by an older man revealing the story of his past.

    There are fighters, dogfights, fist fights, spies, Nazis, love, and jealousy, all stirred into an intriguing story.

    The narration and production values are good. Brad Willis did a good job of bringing the characters to life. Almost everyone in this story is very young, as the fighter pilots of WWII were. For that reason I think the voicing of the 23 year old main character with a very deep voice was a little overdone, but at least it was done well.

    Recommended for anyone interested in military related fiction.
