The Battle of Britain

Britain’s Strong Victory Against Nazi Germany
978280627917040EBookPlurilingua PublishingThe Battle of Britain was the most colossal air combat in history, pitting the forces of Nazi Germany against Great Britain, which by that point stood alone in Europe, its allies having already been beaten down by Adolf Hitler's forces. The battle took place in the autumn of 1940, at an early stage in the Second World War. The stakes could not have been higher: Hitler aimed to destroy the Royal Air Force and invade Great Britain, bringing all of Western Europe under his control, before turning East to vanquish the USSR. However, Britain stood firm, withstanding the Blitz and eventually repelling the Luftwaffe to prevent the Nazis from achieving an outright victory in the war.  In just 50 minutes, you will learn about the tactical errors that hampered Hitler's grand plans and find out how this deadly air combat marked a crucial turning point in the war. This straightforward and informative book provides a thorough analysis of the main events of the battle and the strategies of both sides. It also features biographies of the key commanders and leaders, including Winston Churchill and Hermann Goering, a valuable introduction to the political and social context and an evaluation of the battle's impact, giving you all the essential information about this vital combat. About the Battle of Britain When the Battle of Britain began in July 1940, Great Britain was the last European democracy to stand up to Nazi Germany, as Hitler's troops had already swept through Western Europe with their Blitzkrieg strategy. However, the Royal Air Force and the British people proved incredibly resilient: buoyed by the inspiring leadership of their new Prime Minister Winston Churchill, they stayed strong in the face of devastating aerial bombardment and delivered hope to the populations of the occupied countries. This clear and accessible 40-page book is structured as follows: Introduction to the Battle of Britain Political and social context The Phoney War Britain stands alone against the Nazis Commanders and leaders Winston Churchill, British Prime Minister Hugh Dowding, RAF Marshal Hermann Goering, German Air Marshal Analysis of the battle An air battle in several stages A catastrophic attack on British ports A mistake which changed the course of the war Postponed invasion The British armed forces find new strength The Blitz A blazing victory Impact of the Battle of Britain Great Britain, victorious The USA gradually becomes involved New hope for occupied countries The Luftwaffe's weaknesses The end of Nazi victories in Europe Summary The Battle of Britain was the most colossal air combat in history, pitting the forces of Nazi Germany against Great Britain, which by that point stood alone in Europe, its allies having already been beaten down by Adolf Hitler's forces.
