The remarkable story of 601 Squadron and the Flying Sword.

In the summer of  1940 Britain halted the world's greatest  military power, Hitler's Nazi Germany, which had already conquered most of Europe. She continued the fight and with allies eventually prevailed. This historic turning point was achieved by a very small number of young men, under 3,000 of them, equaling fewer than one percent of the armed forces Britain had earlier sent to France. The brunt was borne by No. 11 Group, Fighter Command, Royal Air Force. Just one man per plane. No squadron in the group fought harder than 601, none had more to lose than the privileged members of 601, the so-called Millionaires' Squadron, and few shed more blood than 601. 

But the BATTLE OF BRITAIN is only a small part of
