Kent and the Battle of Britain - The Long Hot Summer of 1940
Kent was at the centre of the storm as Goering's mighty Luftwaffe was met by the steely tenacity of the RAF's Hurricanes and Spitfires. The courage of the brave young fighter pilots is well known. But supporting them on the ground were countless ordinary men and women. They maintained the airfields, they fought the fires, they restored essential services, tended the wounded and cared for the homeless. This book recalls the days of anxiously watching the vapour trails of dogfights in blue skies above Kent's towns and villages. It relives the terror of sleepless nights caused by exploding bombs, the roar of guns and the sound of falling buildings.
