I enjoyed this book and found it well worth reading. After reading those three, I wanted get Kingcome's perspective as well. Kingcome was acting Squadron Leader for a considerable amount of time 92 Squadron lost about 3 commanders during that time , and has been described as the "glue" that held the squadron together. The book is very well-written, and Kingcome relates many stories and insights that speak to what it was like to be in 92 Squadron in those days.
There is plenty more, as Kingcome takes on ever increasing leadership roles in Spitfire units in Europe and the desert.

The elephant in the room, as far as this book is concerned, is that there is very little description of the air combat action that so many readers desire. So, if that is what you are after, this book is not the place to start. Next would be Bartley's book. If you still find yourself wanting to know more about 92 Squadron, which had great success during the Battle and created an unusually strong bond among the pilots, definitely read Kingcome's book.

A Willingness to Die: Memories from Fighter Command by Brian Kingcome (Paperback, 2006)
This book, which is based on interviews and drafts that he prepared, was all brought together by an editor after Kingcome's death. That he did not live to revise his words and think deeper about some of his observations, is a pity. Still, Kingcome's legacy continues in these pages. While there is not a great deal about combat action, Kingcome's book is interesting and relevant because it says much about the RAF fighter pilot's way of thinking during the war.
The young men who composed the RAF faced death everyday, and as Kingcome observes, he heard about the death of someone he knew every single day of the war.
I strongly recommend this book. It is becoming somewhat difficult to find, but spending some time with it is well worth the effort. It will be a long while before I forget Kingcome's story of his war experiences. I am still reading this book.
