Description
Information
A highly absorbing account of the operations of RAF Fighter Command, from The Battle of Britain to 1945.

In 1940, RAF Fighter Command fought and won the most famous air battle in history - the Battle of Britain. Had it lost, Hitler's armies might well have crossed the Channel to dictate peace in London. After this great victory, Fighter Command went on to the offensive, wearing down the Luftwaffe in the sure knowledge that air superiority was essential if the D-Day landings were ever to take place.

Sixty years on, the number of survivors of the Battle of Britain, and of Fighter Command's subsequent campaigns, is sadly dwindling. This history of the wartime RAF is based on eyewitness testimony as well as a fascinating study of the Second World War in the air.
