A history of the contribution made by Worcestershire to the RAF in the Second World War – from the Battle of Britain to D-Day and beyond.

During the English Civil War, Royalist Worcester was known as ‘The Faithful City’ and author Andrew Long has borrowed this proud title for his history of the county’s contribution to the RAF in the Battle of Britain and after. His Worcestershire heroes include FO Dennis Williams, who piloted a Defiant in the battle; PO Bernard Klee who flew a Spitfire across Europe’ dangerous skies; WO Sid Cleaver who flew the same aircraft in India; Squadron Leader Nigel Bunting DFC and Bar, who was a night fighter ace, and PO George Boucher who flew a Typhoon over the beaches of Normandy – just a few of the ‘Faithful Few’. Drawing on archives, correspondence with surviving veterans and their families and years of patient research Long has produced a book that will interest any Worcestershire native – and all with an interest in the RAF in the Second World War.
