Synopsis

During the summer of 1940, the fate of the world hung in the balance as Adolf Hitler's powerful air force, the Luftwaffe, contested the skies above southern England with Britain's Royal Air Force. A handful of brave but outnumbered RAF pilots, many hailing from outside the United Kingdom, fought desperately to hold the Nazi juggernaut back and, in doing so, defend Britain from invasion. In Prime Minister Winston Churchill's immortal words, those brave RAF pilots were the few on whom so much depended. The brand-new The Battle of Britain traces the origins and course of the Battle of Britain, examining the reasons why Great Britain found itself in such a desperate situation in summer 1940, and why, for all their advantages, the Germans were confounded at what seemed to be the brink of victory.
