9781845134815: The Most Dangerous Enemy: The Definitive History of the Battle of Britain

Already hailed as the standard work, The Most Dangerous Enemy is an authoritative history of the British battle that galvanized the public imagination and symbolized the destiny of a nation. But in this rigorous reinvestigation of the Battle of Britain, Stephen Bungay tells a story full of revelations. Whether assessing the development of radar or the relative merits of the Spitfire, Hurricane, and Messerschmitt, he uncovers the unexpected truth behind many time-honored myths. Not only a major work of modern history but also a truly compelling narrative, The Most Dangerous Enemy confirms the Battle of Britain as a crucial event in European history.

Review:

'Stephen Bungay delves into new ground. These threads have been woven together to form an eloquent and informative tapestry... It will be difficult for a new work on this subject to add any more to our knowledge of those months in 1940' -- Wingspan 'The magnitude and vital importance of the Battle of Britain has found a superb chronicler in Stephen Bungay, whose book is the best single-volume history to be published in over a decade' -- Andrew Roberts 'The most exhaustive and detailed account of the Battle of Britain that has yet appeared' -- Times Literary Supplement 'A fascinating case history in illusion and reality. He dispels the myths and kills the cliches... Admirable' -- Sunday Times
