Unread, unmarked, pristine. 248 pages plus 16 pages of b&w photographs. Appendices. Index. Paul Richey's Fighter Pilot, originally published in 1941, is considered a classic. It has been reprinted many times and has been one of the largest-selling aviation history titles of all time. Fighter Pilot's Summer is the sequel, by Norman Franks, to whom Richey entrusted all his materials before his death. Norman Franks is the only historian Richey believed could complete his story. And it has turned out a masterpiece — a riveting and touching read that draws heavily on the Richey archives, and incorporates six chapters written by Richey himself. Fighter Pilot's Summer is the story of 609 Squadron's offensive war in the summer of 1941 when the RAF started to take the war to the enemy over Northern France. From Europe to the Desert to the Far East, the career of one of the war's brightest stars is now completely on record.
