FIGHTER The True Story of The Battle of Britain
260 pages, over 100 photographs and illustrations
A factual and comprehensive picture of the men, the machines, the strategies, (and the blunders), and the events on both sides. Len Deighton shows us the British squandering precious fighter planes in a futile effort to halt the German blitzkrieg in France, and the Germans refusing to believe in the effectiveness of British radar. He also compares the fire power, combat tactics, and ground control, analyzing the performance of planes and pilots.
