The fighter aces who flew Spitfires and Hurricanes during the Battle of Britain have received just acclaim, but the efforts of the airmen who flew in the Bristol Blenheim are all but forgotten. Drawing on contemporary diaries, logbooks and interviews with survivors, this book tells the somewhat less successful but no less proud operational history of the Blenheim, which played its part during a critical period of the war despite being outclassed by its adversaries.
