This book is primarily produced as a tribute and research source. The magnificent young men of many countries came together to halt the German war machine. Greatly outnumbered and often with few flying hours on Hurricanes and Spitfires they stood against the Luftwaffe and denied them air superiority. As a battle it can be described as a draw because the Luftwaffe still sent over decreasing numbers of aircraft to attack Britain, but it was a great victory because it stopped the German war machine from completing the conquest of Europe.

From the end of the Battle of Britain the Germans still had victories in the Balkans, North Africa and on the new Eastern Front, but the real turning point in the war was the Battle of Britain. From then on, Germany could not win the war and the only question was how long it would be before the Allies were able to liberate Europe. Profiles in this new book include pilots who bravely fought and survived the Battle of Britain but were to fall in later battles of the Second World War.
