On Monday 12th August 1940 at the height of the Battle of Britain, an RAF pilot was awarded the Victoria Cross for outstanding bravery in the face of overwhelming odds. The following day, an entire RAF squadron was almost wiped out during one disastrous mission, 24 men died. A month later, on Battle of Britain Day itself, a young RAF airman fought a raging fire in his cockpit to ensure that his aircraft got home safely, he too was awarded the Victoria Cross. Worthy members of 'The Few' no doubt, but no, these men were from Bomber Command. They, with their comrades in Coastal Command and the Fleet Air Arm, formed 'The Other Few' and fought a Battle just as intense, just as desperate and just as important for the security of the British Isles. This is their untold story, set out in a day-by-day diary format and illustrated with over 250 rare wartime photos and personal accounts. A long overdue chance to record and celebrate the contribution made by Bomber and Coastal aircrew to the winning of the Battle of Britain.
