From the bestselling author of 'Fighter Boys' and 'Bomber Boys', 'Battle Of Britain' is a magisterial account of a defining episode in modern British history: the epic struggle of RAF Fighter Command with the Luftwaffe in the summer of 1940.
From the evacuation of Dunkirk in May/June 1940 to Fighter Command's assertion of superiority over the Luftwaffe in mid-September of that year, Patrick Bishop charts the key staging-posts of Britain's fight for national survival. It's dogfights, its heroes and victims, its impact on flyers and civilians alike is evoked in a richly compelling and moving narrative. Eye-witness descriptions and extracts from diaries and journals evoke the often horrific reality of war in the air.
