287 pp, 8vo (9 1/2" H). B&w photographs. "Squadrons were the basic combat units in RAF Fighter Command; their combat effectiveness was a factor of crucial importance - transcending even the abilities of the brilliant individual pilots within the squadrons and the tactical and strategic skills of the senior commanders who deployed them. That the Battle of Britain was not won by courage alone emerges from the pages of this book, which examines the problems of tactics and leadership encountered by the RAF's fighter force when thrown into a battle for which it was less than adequately prepared. In an opening, wide-ranging chapter, the author considers the general course of the battle and the organization, tactics and equipment with which the RAF went to war. Thereafter he concen-trates on the operations and experiences of eight squadrons heavily engaged in the battle, describing and analysing the events, decisions and circumstances of the daily encounters with German intruders. Meticulously researched from official documents and by consultation with many of the survivors of 'the few', (this book) provides an illuminating new perspective on the greatest air battle of the Second World War." Tiny bump at top of spine.
