The Battle of Britain
The Battle of Britain: June-October 1940 : an Oral History of Britain's Finest Hour | Matthew Parker
1 post
In the summer of 1940, Britain's army had been driven ignominously from France, her allies had collapsed and the population was seized with invasion panic. It seemed only a matter of time before Britain was forced to surrender to Germany's terrifying and efficient fighting machine. Into this terrible moment stepped Winston Churchill and the fighter squadrons of the RAF. A ruthless battle to the death ensued in the skies of southern England. The story of how Britain survived the rest of that year to inflict on Hitler his very first defeat is about tactics, aircraft and leadership. But above all, it is a story of heroism and endurance told from both sides.

Billypar @Cinfhen hopefully Kate Atkinson did her homework in LAL. The bombings in that novel took place in September and October 1940. 2mo

Billypar @Cinfhen The repetition must have been cruel if you're not a fan! @arlenefinnigan I would be interested to see how much this book discusses the rescue squads that went on after a bomb and how accurately that was portrayed. 2mo
arlenefinnigan @Billypar I haven't read it, it's one of my husband's MANY military history books. 2mo
