Ploughing through books at the moment: Return Via Dunkirk - Gun Buster - Plenty of threads on this one already. I enjoyed this, plenty of everyday detail. The best Gun Buster book I've read so far. Dunkirk (Great Escape) - AJ Barker - Very well written account from the late 70s. The veteran accounts were garnered mainly from people living in South Africa, so not the usual UK based interviews that are more common. Fairey Battle - A reappraisal - Greg Baughen - The third of Baughen's books I've read. I enjoy the style as it gets you thinking, but I can understand his detractors as he tends to get blinkered once he's got a particular theme going. The main assessment here is that the Battle has been unfairly treated as it was not provided with armour or self sealing fuel tanks, and was sent on long range daylight strikes without fighter escort. He argue that if the plane had been used more in an army cooperation role, it may have been far more successful. Unfortunately he then concludes that the whole course of The Battle of France could have been altered, which is a hell of a jump into 'what if' territory for a short book based on one aircraft type.
