Reviews

'Among all the many stories of the Battle of Britain, Bob Doe's stands out. In this sensitive & well-researched biography we see the modest man behind the fighter ace.' * Richard Overy *
'This book is probably the best biographical account I have read of anybody in any walk of life and I recommend it without reservation. Whilst the final comment from Doe, that he and his colleagues should not be seen as heroes but remembered for what they did, is probably a good reflection of the man but perhaps too modest, given the pivotal importance of the Battle of Britain and its place in history.' -- Royal Air Force Historical Society, Journal 65 (2017) pp. 129-131
'Compelling & moving' * Stephen Bungay *
