The Battle of Britain by Anthony Richards
In the summer of 1940, the Nazi Blitzkrieg had blown through much of western Europe, seizing control of territory right up to the French coast and preparing to invade Britain. Standing in their way was Fighter, Bomber and Coastal Commands and the Royal Navy, all determined to prevent invasion, fighting off enemy forces in the air and in the water to protect the British shores.
Published to coincide with Battle of Britain Day in 2022, this audiobook tells the heroic story of those five months using interviews, documents and materials from the archive at IWM. Personal testimony from those who were there helps bring to life this truly unique retelling of one of the most important moments of the Second World War.
