"The Battle of Britain: Portraits of the Few is an exceptional tribute to the small group of legendary pilots that served with the Royal Air Force through one of the most critical periods of the Second World War. Portraits of the Few contains over 60 colour illustrations, capturing the images and character of the military aviators who were designated the ‘Few’ by British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Accompanying the portraits, painted by artist David Pritchard, are action filled accounts written by Second World War aviation author Christopher Yeoman, recounting gripping combats and ferocious encounters as the respective men successfully resist the might of the Luftwaffe.
Indeed the aerial battle fought during the long and glorious summer of 1940 is now viewed as one of the most decisive episodes in all of British history. Each and every day proved consequential, ultimately shaping the island’s future. It was a struggle which will never be forgotten by the wartime population of Great Britain; it will never be forgotten for generations to come. The Battle of Britain: Portraits of the Few celebrates the airmen’s legacy and is a unique tribute to this group of extraordinary men." -  Fighting High

"Christopher Yeoman and David Pritchard present a most entertaining book that will grace any collection and is an absolute 'must' for future and present generations" - Squadron Leader Geoffrey Wellum, DFC.
