Eagle Day: The Battle of Britain

By Richard Collier

The Team’s choice: with so many books tackling the Battle of Britain, this one stands head and shoulders above many others for the way it stitches colourful personal vignettes together from (and this is crucial) both sides of the war. It’s not perfect. In places, it might lack some of the statistics and wider picture you’d prefer to put the focused narrative into context. But what makes it a must-have for your bookshelves, is the way Collier captures human stories in the heat and heart of a battle. Read it to meet real people, re-read it many times for real pleasure.
