If you are a pilot or interested in WWII then this is a must. It brings you through the battle of Britain with historical accuarcy in a personal format. You learn about what was happening on both sides of the channel.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend it very highly. Mr. Kershaw did an amazing job of "personalizing" these pilots; American, British and German.
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
The personalities of the pilots.
What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The dialect of the varied nationalities of the participants.
If you could give The Few a new subtitle, what would it be?
They Died While America Slept
Any additional comments?
I was disappointed that the book had to end.

A superb history filled with first hand accounts and well researched and documented events. Nearly put off by the narrator with his odd accents and references to things like 'Em Kay eleven (Mk II)' Hurricanes. I would like to have seen one of those. Stukageswader II (St.G II) is canonised as 'Saint Gee two'. If you can get past having a narrator who doesn't understand the acronyms in the text and has a funny idea of what a spoken English accent sounds like, then this book is probably just the ticket, old boy. Tally ho!
Thank you for writing this book. I also want to thank every man who came to the UKs aid during the Battle for Britain. I SALUTE YOU
