First Light

First Light tells the compelling true story behind the youngest Spitfire pilot to fight in the Battle of Britain


Thrown into the crucible of the most violent air war ever seen, a boy, barely out of school, is determined to fight for survival… At the age of nineteen, Geoffrey Boy Wellum was the youngest Spitfire pilot in the Battle of Britain. This is the dramatic story of the teenager who went to war with the Nazis and with the fear that threatened to engulf him. Combining Geoffrey Wellum s compelling first person testimony with intensely evocative action on the ground and in the air, First Light is a powerful drama that documents the universal stark horror experienced by those involved in battle
