Victory 1940-the Battle of Britain as Never Seen Before, John Dibbs and Tony Holmes, Key Publishing, hbk, illus, £19.99


Pictorial Tribute

The photographic work of John Dibbs is well known in these pages and elsewhere. In this superb book, he presents a compilation of his best work featuring aircraft that hail from or are representative of the Battle of Britain. Victory 1940 is a timely publication, recognising and paying tribute to the aviators of 75 years ago, and looking back on a famous campaign that proved pivotal to Allied success in Europe. Presented in hardback and lavishly illustrated with John’s evocative images, this publication offers a pictorial chronology of the conflict. It focuses on contemporary images of restored Battle of Britain warbirds, combined with previously unpublished archive material. The book features a foreword by Wg Cdr Tom Neil DFC* AFC, one of Churchill’s Few. To order your copy visit the website above or call 01780 480404.
