Description

During the summer of 1940, Britain's aircrews faced overwhelming odds and nearly disastrous losses. This compelling account of the conflict focuses upon the operations of Fighter Command to show how an extraordinary victory was achieved - and the price that was paid for it. Prepared for the RAF soon after the Second World War, Battle of Britain draws upon Operations Record Books of Fighter Command, combat reports of individual pilots and the analysis of squadron intelligence officers to show how the battle appeared to unfold. The narrative explores the conflict's different phases, complemented by an informed modern commentary offering the perspective of 70 years. This result is a fascinating interpretation of a legendary air battle and a powerful tribute to 'the few' who defended Britain's shores.
