Battle of Britain

Battle of Britain

(2009)
A non fiction book by

 
After the fall of France in 1940, Hitler turned his attention to Germany's sole remaining enemy: Great Britain. His plans to invade Britain depended on crippling Britain's Royal Air Force. In July the Luftwaffe, the German air force, began its attempt to bomb Britain into submission - the resulting conflict was known as the Battle of Britain. Acclaimed historian Patrick Bishop is ideally placed to tell the story of Britain's fight for national survival. Battle of Britain offers a concise, day-by-day narrative account of the battle along with illustrations, eye-witness accounts, documents, posters and timelines. Every aspect of the battle is covered from multiple points of view providing a unique and gripping account of the battle, the men and women who fought it, and the world of the 1940s. Numerous and fascinating aspects of the conflict are discussed: aircraft and aircraft specifications; RAF Fighter Command order of battle; Luftwaffe order of battle; RAF Fighter Command groups; squadrons; commanders; meteorological conditions; plane and pilot casualties; ace flyers and their kill rates; navigation aids; myths, stories and the legend of 'the few'.
