One of the Few: A triumphant story of combat in the Battle of Britain

One of the Few is the gripping autobiography of a man whose air force career firmly proved him to be ‘one of the few’.

Group Captain Johnny Kent grew up in Winnipeg and became the youngest licensed pilot in Canada at the age of 17. He grabbed experience and flying hours both wherever and whenever he could and was constantly on the lookout for a career in flying.

His chance came when he was offered an RAF commission in the 1930’s and went on to become the leader of one of the most successful fighter squadrons of the Second World War. His leadership helped the 303 Polish Squadron play a decisive role in the Battle of Britain, and earned him the highest Polish military award, the Virtuti Militari as well as the affectionate nickname ‘Kentowski’.

This new edition includes an introductory chapter and epilogue by his daughter that places his story into the broader context of his life as a son, husband and fighter.
