Here's a great Battle of Britan book to read - "Fly For Your Life", by Larry Forrester.

It's about Robert Stanford Tuck, Britain's leading ace. He gets shot down and escapes from a prison camp to the Russians with a Polish pilot. Then they both have to escape from the Russians.

A really excellent BoB film is "Dark Blue World".

It's about two Czech pilots who fled Czechoslovakia to fight with the RAF (and one gets imprisoned on his return, story very similar to Skalski.)

Thanks. Another great movie is A Bridge Too Far. You can pick it up on DVD for under $10. My son and I have watched it literally 15 times or more.
