    MOBI ó DOC The Few By Alex Kershaw Hardcover Ý ALEX KERSHAW The Few By Alex KershThe title of this book really has two meaningsfirst the Few refers to the RAF in the Battle of Britain as mentioned in one of Churchill's most famous speeches; second it also refers to the few Americans who came to England while the United States was still neutral to fly and fight with their English brother airmen in the RAF We seldom hear of those original seven Americans who risked their citizenship to join the fight against the

    MOBI ó DOC The Few By Alex Kershaw Hardcover Ý ALEX KERSHAW The Few By Alex KershI really think highly of Alex Kershaw's ability to blend the horrors and excitement of war with thorough research and a recognition that these are young men in this case risking their lives for philosophical commitments like freedom and patriotism as well as acknowledging that they were also high flying dare devils who really wanted to fly The 7 Americans and one American under Canadian passport who are the center of this book risked prison to fly for the British in 1940 because of America's commitment to neutrality A very fast read even though I have limited knowledge of WWII battles and less about fighter pilots and airplanes
