WWII's Battle of Britain is so tense it is almost suspenseful in Scott Brick's narration of a story that focuses on seven U.S. airmen who risked life, limb, and citizenship to join the British Air Force during the period of U.S. neutrality. Listeners are taken aboard Spitfires, Messerschmitts, and bombers to see it all from the air. Brick is at his best when voicing the memories of the American pilots, but Churchill, Hitler, Goering, and others make appearances. Brick's German accents are a bit stereotypical, but his British upper-crust fly boys and earnest Americans are on target. Daily routines on base and tense air combat scenes are filled with technical and military information. Still the story moves at an amazing clip.
