I should probably get hold of this work but I seriously wonder what it adds to the debate over the Battle. One day someone will produce a scholarly account of the battle.


Alistair Hollington

I found it quite an interesting account, with the caveat that I haven't read that widely on the topic. One factor I particularly liked was the link made in the narrative between the battle of France and the battle of Britain. I found it to be more a history of 1940 than perhaps the main title suggests.The little reading I have done on this topic has treated the air aspect of the BoB almost in a vacuum. I do have Stephen Bungay's "The most dangerous enemy" in my too read pile, so may need to move that to the top, now that James' book has stimulated my interest.
