Haar presents a balanced and well researched picture of the opening months of the naval conflict during World War Two. He presents convincing arguments without bias. A vast collection of photographs and other archival material help complete the image Haar creates. Information in the appendices is thoroughly researched and supports Haar's arguments. Although a great deal of detail is presented, Haar does not lose sight of the larger argument and constantly references back to his key arguments.

View From Bridport

Australia's Few and the Battle of Britain takes the reader on a journey of discovery that produces outstanding access to the personal papers and records of eight men who flew in the Battle. The book is a perfect result of military and personal biography combined... I am glad to have it on my shelf.

Air Crew Book Review

This is an interesting book, and one that covers a slightly different view of WWII...I found this to be an engaging read, and some new perspectives of what happened in Belgium during this period.
