The Battle of Britain Experience

£14.99

Product description

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. The Battle of Britain was thus without doubt one of, if not the, most important victories in British history. At its end 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.

Published in association with the Royal Air Force to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the battle of Britain, 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 from the Royal Air Force Museum and the National Archives brings this great battle to life as never before.

Hardcover Book housed in a cardboard slipcase.
