As such, the Battle of Britain was without doubt one of, if not, the most important victories in British history.

The Battle of Britain tells the extraordinary story of one of the pivotal events of the Second World War - the struggle between British and German air forces in the late summer and autumn of 1940. Richard Overy is at pains to dispose of the myths and expose the real history of what he does not doubt was a great British victory. the best historical analysis in readable form which has yet appeared on this prime subject' Noble Frankland, The Times Literary Supplement.

On 18 June 1940 Churchill declared in the Commons - 'The Battle of France is over...the Battle for Britain is about to begin'. With the fall of France, Great Britain was Hitler's last remaining stepping-stone to European domination. In July Hitler told his commanders to prepare for the invasion of England. To do this they would have to destroy the RAF - Britain's last line of defence. As such the Battle of Britain was without doubt one of, if not the, most important victories in British history. At the end of it Hitler cancelled all plans to invade England and the Allies maintained a European stronghold from which to launch the eventual operation to recapture mainland Europe. This book is the story of that battle: the machines which took to the air; the tactics employed by each side; gripping accounts of the action; the people who took part from the Commanders, to the pilots to ground crew and plotters. Fascinating facsimile documents brings this great battle to life as never before. Documents to provisionally include: Churchill's notes for his famous 'never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few'; the order and plans for Germany's invasion of Great Britain - Operation 'Sealion; and, log books of pilots who flew in the Battle.
