Two months before the outbreak of WWII, 17-year-old Geoffrey Wellum leaves school to become a fighter pilot with the RAF. Bursting with youthful energy and expectations, he makes it through basic training to become the youngest Spitfire pilot in the prestigious 92 Squadron. Thrust into combat almost immediately, Wellum finds himself flying several sorties a day, caught up in terrifying dogfights with German Me 109s. Over the coming months he and his fellow pilots play a crucial role in the Battle of Britain. But of the friends that take to the air alongside Wellum, many never return.

First Light is Geoffrey Wellum's gripping memoir of his experiences as a fighter pilot.
