Overview
-

There are few visual records of the dramatic encounters that took place over southern England during that long summer as Nazi Germany prepared to invade Britain. This commemorative book relives these historic events as the RAF, though outnumbered, repelled the might of Hitler’s war machine.

This book is not simply a collection of artwork; first and foremost it is a historically accurate recollection of events, painstakingly researched with the assistance of leading historians.

However, being illustrated by the world’s leading military and aviation artists rather than photographs makes it a totally unique account and very different to any others.

Much of the work included was produced exclusively for the book and many specially created maps and diagrams make the edition perfect for military enthusiasts and art collectors alike.

It is a fitting tribute to those young men of RAF Fighter Command – ‘Churchill’s Few’ – who took part in one of the most important air battles ever fought.
