Worcestershire brothers, Mac and Barry Goodwin’s, true story told from a bedrock of fact but as living flesh. Their mastery of the air as teenagers and then as RAF pilots in 605 (The County of Warwick) Squadron and 609 (West Riding) Squadron in WW2 flying Hurricanes and Spitfires is set against a privileged family background.

It includes Barry’s hard won fame at Shelsley Walsh, hill climbing in a supercharged Frazer-Nash with the best of the drivers of the pre-War era; be with Barry driving the Hill; be with them over Dunkirk and with Mac in the skies protecting England as the Battle of Britain unfolds.

This is a two generation family story of triumph and tragedy; of love and loss which demonstrates the devastation wrought on those families who lose sons and daughters in war. This is fast moving historical fiction that will woo you and move you.
