I've read good reviews of "The Most Dangerous Enemy" by Dr. Stephen Bungay,about the Battle of Britain.
I was wondering what those in the flight sim/WW2 afficianado community that had read it,thought of it.
I'm thinking about doing an inter-library loan,and wondered if it's worth the trouble.
Thanks in advance.

I've not read it myself tho I have read many such accounts of the BoB over the years.
I see it got good reviews and I've seen him featured in documentaries such as Spitfire Ace.
Maybe I'll pick it up and add it to the collection.

Excellent book, and 'Spitfire Ace' was an excellent TV show.
Basically the author endorses the opinions he espoused in the TV and elaborates on them. As a kid i really got carried away with the mystique of the BOB- a cold hard look at the facts and a re-evaluation of the opposing strategies puts a very different perspective on it though.
It certainly made me want to know more about Keith Park!
