Per our last vote, the Battle of Britain book by Christer Bergstrom was a very close second, so we'll make it our next book!

I haven't read this book, but I'd be interested in reading a comparison between this and Derek Robinson's Invasion 1940, which had some very interesting myth-challenging data regarding the Battle of Britain.

Is this a new book? My local library doesn't seem to have it.

That's a Palm Pilot on the left, and a pink iPod mini on the right. Yes, I've been doing BGTG that long!

Brand new. I'm in the same boat, with access to three different multi-city public library systems, but none of them have the book.

Are you suggesting 'Private Readings'?

I fear that we would be too boisterous if all gathered in the same venue...

I read it about a month ago, after I convinced our local library to purchase it.

Very readable, lots of stories from and about aircrew on both sides.

Maybe the price is an issue. I suggest next time we choose a book that's available in paperback.

Is it time for another book, or did I miss a post somewhere?
