The Battle of Britain


Not a new book as such, but a paperback edition of a book published in 2010, and this to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. This book is interesting in many regards in detailing all the aspects of the Battle of Britain and the dramatic events which occurred before the Battle , including the political and military situation and the decisions made, the RAF and the Luftwaffe, both seen in their pre-war evolution, and how actually the bomber strategy had become important over the fighters in UK and in Germany alike and actually really predominant. Illustrated with photographs mainly coming IWM collection. Also, all the statistics are included in the appendices at the end of the book avoiding to have these figures in the main text, something apreciable. A very subtle analysis; a good book to make short.
