Dear all,

Sad news indeed, may he rest in piece and stay a source of inspiration for the next generation of air war historians. Wasn't he knighted for his work Chris?

All the best, Marcel

His Spitfire Story is still the other cornerstone of all Spitfire book collections.

Dr. Price was an excellent historian and good man, by all accounts. May he Rest in Peace.

He was never knighted but got an honorary Dr if I am not much mistaken

I never knew him but eagerly read his work and Battle Over The Reich was the first book I bought once I'd started work and could afford the 4. His writing style was also an inspiration for being at once highly readable and informative. Battle of Britain: The Hardest Day is a shining example for the way he sets the scene and then takes you to the heart of action.
