Recently I snapped an interesting reading tip at the discussion forum of BoBHS (Battle of Britain Historical Society) about the new online magazine devoted to aviation history which had its premiere last week: Fighting High – Winning the Air Battle 1939-1945.
Fighting High is the initiative of Steve Darlow, military aviation historian and book author. The first issue contains an article about 609 Squadron pilot Gordon Mitchell together with other World War II recollections – Beaufighters in the Mediterranean and an interesting combat incident between German Fw 190 and RAF Spitfire over Sicily.
There are also book reviews, including that of the newly issued Bader’s Last Fight.
The magazine is available for download as PDF via the following link:
You will undoubtedly notice that issue one is very nicely laid out. It looks good on screen, but is actually a real pleasure to read in high-quality color print. It includes photographs and maps just as a paper magazine would do. Being in PDF format, it is also easy to save for future reference.
Fighting High is free to download, although the editor hopes for voluntary contributions to help in the development of the e-zine. No information is given about how often the magazine will appear.
Looking good so far and warmly recommended.
