Description
This is a fine, sharply focused account of the three-month air battle between the Royal Air Force and the Luftwaffe over Britain in 1940, balancing a historical background with dramatic tellings of air-to-air engagements over the English countryside, using first-person and eyewitness descriptions. The authors provide insight into how the British laid the groundwork for victory through aircraft research and production, the development and implementation of command and control structures, and research into new technologies, the most important of which was radar.

"While this title by two Royal Air Force (RAF) historians has plenty of air combat scenes, it also features an intelligent and informative study of why the struggle turned out the way it did. The authors go back to the early years of the RAF for perspective and provide a mature treatment of the tactical mechanics of the battle."Library Journal
