The best sort of popular military history--Times Literary Supplement. Sixty years ago, in England's summer skies, history's greatest air battle raged. In a decisive moment, those whom Churchill so famously addressed as the few thwarted Hitler's planned invasion. Over 160 graphic images and riveting testimony by Allied and Luftwaffe pilots, ground crew, and civilians paint a panoramic portrait of this confrontation. Pictures of wartime locations as they were then and are now, plus vintage photos from scrapbooks and diary excerpts, provide a uniquely personal perspective.
