Last of the Few: 20 Battle of Britain Fighter Pilots Tell Their Extraordinary Stories - Dilip Sarkar This book offers personal accounts from the surviving "Few" of RAF Fighter Command who took part in the Battle of Britain during the summer and autumn of 1940 and thereby saved Britain (and by extension, the world) from Nazi tyranny.

Many of the former pilots (now in their 80s and 90s) featured in this book, while not among the high scoring 'aces', played a no less invaluable role as part of the rank and file of the Royal Air Force. They flew off into battle day after after day against the full force of the Luftwaffe. They did their duty unflinchingly.
