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. So much pride and national spirit is tied up in this crucial battle that it has spawned numerous films and its anniversaries are greeted by television and newspaper coverage year after year. Hundreds of books have been written on the subject, its stories retold time and time again and one would think a new approach to the subject well-nigh impossible. Armand van Ishoven has done the impossible.
A well respected author and authority on the Luftwaffe, his close contacts with wartime veterans have 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.
