Douglas Bader's story is one of the most remarkable of the Second World War, not just for his own personal triumph over disability but also for his leading role in the Battle of Britain. This analysis of the crucial period of the war, first published in the 1980s, tells the story of the five squadrons of the Bader Wing and assesses the controversial 'Big Wing' tactics favoured by Bader and Air Vice-Marshal Trafford Leigh-Mallory.
