About this item

Group Captain Johnny Kent joined the RAF in the 1930s and went on to become the leader of one of the most successful fighter squadrons of World War II. His skillful leadership helped the famous 303 Squadron to play such a decisive part in the Battle of Britain, and won him the highest Polish military award, the Virtuti Militari. This is Captain Kent’s story of his life in the RAF, from his struggles as a boy in the wilds of Canada to get into the air, through his experiences as a test pilot in Farnborough and his constant efforts to fly wherever the action was. It is a story of triumphant achievement in combat, and of a man whose air force career certainly picked him out as "One of the Few."
