The Battle of Britain Story free pdf The summer of 1940 witnessed the greatest air battle in history, as the men Winston Churchill dubbed 'The Few' fought over the skies of Britain to prevent the Luftwaffe from gaining air superiority, which would have paved the way for Hitler to invade our island. Graham Pitchfork charts the development of the epic battle fought by Fighter Command as it reacted to the changes in the Luftwaffe's strategy, reaching a climax on 15 September before finally coming to a conclusion in October 1940. In addition to the exploits of the pilots in the air, the contribution of the many ground organisations that played such a crucial role is also highlighted in this lavishly illustrated book. Air Commodore Graham Pitchfork is a well-known aviation author whose previous books include "The RAF Day by Day" and "The RAF's First Jet Squadron: 616 (South Yorkshire)".
