The Second World War will always hold a legendary place in Britain’s history, and indeed the history of the world. Few campaigns within either of the world wars are as well-known and remembered as the Battle of Britain. Immortalised in Churchill’s speech before the battle even began, it was foremost a confl ict in the sky, but its eff ects were also felt keenly on the ground. In this special 75th anniversary edition, you’ll fi nd incredible images of the battle’s people and planes, its devastating eff ects, and in-depth information about key moments and strategies. You’ll also fi nd fascinating insights into how people experienced the war, with facsimiles of documents including letters sent home to loved ones, instructional pamphlets used by pilots, and morale reports. Discover the battle through the eyes of those who saw it, and honour the sacrifi ces made three-quarters of a century ago.
