The victory of the Battle of Britain ranks with Marathon and the Marne as a decisive point in history. At the end of June 1940; having overrun much of Western Europe; the Nazi war leaders knew that they had to defeat the Royal Air Force Fighter Command before they could invade the British mainland. With a finely-struck balance of historical background and dramatic renderings of RAF and Luftwaffe engagements over the English countryside; Hough and Richards offer a history that is at once deep and wide-ranging. They offer 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. Hough and Richards also utilize first-person accounts of the battle whenever possible; rendering the battle scenes with cinematic intensity. A compelling introduction to one of the most important battles of World War II; The Battle of Britain pays tribute to the men about whom Winston Churchill would remark; Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.
