Details

This second of three volumes traces the history of 72 Fighter Squadron one of the premier squadrons in the Royal Air Force. The aircraft flown operational personnel and missions flown are fully described with first-hand accounts from pilots and both air and ground crew. Having been operational in the European theatre during the early years of World War Two the squadron moved to North Africa in support of the Tunisian campaign and were re-equipped with the updated Spitfire IX in 1942. They then assisted the Allied 8th Army as it advanced through Italy and France being based in Malta and Sicily prior to the invasions. When the Germans surrendered they were sent to Austria. It was here that the Squadron disbanded in December 1946.
