Six Weeks of Blenheim Summer
Available in Stock
Alastair Panton's active war service was a short but intense experience, flying Bristol Blenheim Mark IV aircraft on reconnaissance missions over France in the weeks leading up to and after the Dunkirk evacuation. He was eventually shot down, badly burned in the crash and taken prisoner of war. This memoir, written later in life, was discovered after his death by his granddaughter, who edits and introduces the book and includes three short stories Panton wrote describing life in a German POW camp.
