The Battle of Britain

James Holland

The ground-breaking and definitive account of the Battle of Britain from one of this country’s most acclaimed young historians ‘A notable account of an epic human experience’ Max Hastings, Sunday Times ‘Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war’ Sir Winston Churchill, speech to the House of Commons, 18 June 1940 The Nazi Blitzkrieg was unlike any invasion the world had ever seen. It hit Europe with a force and aggression that no-one could counter. Within weeks the German armies were at the French coast and looking across at Britain. It seemed impossible that she would be able to resist invasion. Between the Nazis and glory stood an apparently fragile defence, but the men and women of Fighter, Bomber and Coastal Commands and the Royal Navy would not be cowed. Their heroics that summer would go down in history. In The Battle of Britain for the first time, James Holland tells this most epic of stories from a 360 perspective - when the fate of the world truly hung by a thread.
