  • Description

The 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain provided an opportunity to tell the story of that 3 month struggle in a completely new form. This is what the medium of the blog provided. Following on from the huge success of battleofbritainblog.com this book now brings together the daily events between July 10 and October 31 1940 along with a selection of the interesting and informative comments made by readers of the blog. Day by day the story unfolds with details of the day's fighting along with information about the pilots, aircraft, airfields, commanders and support crews. Presented in this way the battle tells its own story, capturing the drama and courage of all those involved in this important and remarkable event in Britain's history. Winged Victory now provides a historic record of what happened in a manner which captures the immediacy of the blog.

The Battle of Britain marked a turning point in the nation's history. It offered an outstanding example of personal bravery and it brought together members of the Commonwealth, together with pilots from several European countries which had been overrun in the opening phases of the Second World War. All of whom were none the less determined to join what was in effect a fight for freedom. Lastly ,it was a battle which was fought out in the skies over Britain which meant that the British public were witness to the whole hugely dramatic event.
