This superb close-up of the tremendous drama of the air battles over Britain during World War II brilliantly re-creates one of the greatest flying adventures of all time. In July 1940 Hitler promised to invade England and began to amass the greatest invasion armada in history. But first he had to smash the Royal Air Force. Hopelessly outnumbered ... at least five to one . . . the immortal warriors of the RAF faced the deadly might of Hitlers air power with a courage and gallantry that were incredible. "Never before," said Winston Churchill, "have so many owed so much to so few." Here is the full and heroic story of those men in the Spitfires and Hurricanes, a breathless minute-by- minute account of some of the fiercest dogfights in the history of aerial warfare. The Battle— and its meaning— has never been brought more vividly to life than in this book.
