Re: Alfred Price

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

Re: Alfred Price

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

Re: Alfred Price

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

Re: Alfred Price

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

Re: Alfred Price

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.
