128 pp, 4to (11 3/8" H). Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs. "The Battle of Britain has always been seen as one of the major turning points of the war: the might of the Luftwaffe, devastator of half of Europe, turned towards the beleaguered British Isles to stamp out the RAF and prepare the way for Operation Sea Lion - the first proper invasion of Great Britain since 1066. (The author has) produced a fascinating collection of eyewitness accounts and reports - many produced while the heat of battle was still on the writers - and a staggering number of German photographs, few of which have been published before. All in all it is a dramatic account of what it was like to fight on the other side to 'the few' during the battle of Britain." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright. Fine
