In July 1940, England stood alone, with only the Royal Air Force to defend her against the German Luftwaffe. But even as the nation fought, John Dowding, mastermind of the RAF's winning strategy, underwent a personal struggle against his rivals in the Air Ministry. In October of that year, he was dismissed. Why? This engrossing behind-the-scenes look contrasts the battles in the corridors of power with the dramatic war in the air--revealing the full truth behind the Battle of Britain.

About the Author:

Dr John Ray has taught history for forty years. In 1988 he retired from a large secondary school in Kent to undertake postgraduate research on Air Chief Marshall Sir Hugh Dowding and the Battle of Britain. His subsequent book The Battle of Britain: New Perspectives, published in 1994, sought to re-examine the complicated political and military background to that most important struggle. He is author of more than thirty earlier books, mostly for secondary school students preparing for examinations.
