S. P. MacKenzie. The Battle of Britain on Screen: 'The Few' in British Film and Television Drama. Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press, 2007. A short but densely-packed book, a series of cases studies of key representations of the Battle: The Lion Has Wings, The First of the Few, Angels One Five, Reach for the Sky, Battle of Britain, Piece of Cake, A Perfect Hero. Of course, The Lion Has Wings was made before the Battle, and so is anticipation, not memory. Note: review copy (not for Airminded).
