We rightly venerate those who fought in the Battle of Britain but what of those other fighter pilots who fought in World War II? Keith Quilter was a naval carrier pilot flying Corsairs in the Pacific, while Colin Bell flew Mosquitoes over Germany as part of the Light Night Strike Force. For both, the danger was immense and required extraordinary skill and unbelievable courage. In conversation with Will Iredale, author of The Kamikaze Hunters, the stories of The Fighter Pilots will be truly incredible.
