The Battle of Britain StoryeBook - 2010
The Battle of Britain was a World War II air campaign waged by the German Air Force (Luftwaffe) against the United Kingdom during the summer and autumn of 1940. It was the first major campaign to be fought entirely by air forces and name derives from a famous speech delivered by Prime Minister Winston Churchill in the House of Commons.
Perhaps the most famous aerial conflict of all time, the Battle of Britain stands as testament to those who gave their lives in defending Britain and all that freedom stands for. To commemorate the 70th anniversary, complete with a full Roll of Honour of those pilots who fought in the battle, this fully illustrated hardback book includes a brief background to the events preceding the fight and a comprehensive account of the battle itself. It also includes detailed accounts of the aircraft involved and in-depth analysis of the battle plans which ultimately lead to Britain’s “finest hour”.
