Popular Battle Of Britain Books
One of the popular methods of research is through good reference books. Of course for the most accurate information that you require would be from the genuine records that are held at the Public Records Office at Kew in London. But we have to appreciate that not everybody has access to the PRO, especially those that are living overseas or those that are not in a position to get to London. We do therefore have to rely on our historians that publish the results of their research in books. We must emphasis here that although books are an excellent source of reference, you should not solely rely on them for accuracy.

Seventy years ago this past summer, two powerful air force rivals clashed in a contest that still stirs the imagination.

Only a few erroneous photo captions mar an otherwise magnificent presentation.
The Battle of Britain
It took place before the Second World War. It is said to be the first major campaign in the military which was fought completely by Air Forces and lasted for a year Germany gradually took over the seaports and shipping centers and progressed onto targeting factories that produced aircraft and bombing areas of political civilians. Germany was only able to operate night bombings called as the Blitz. The major turning point in the Second World War was the failure of Germany to destroy the air forces of Britain.

The Battle of Britain is one of the landmarks of our military history. So rightly takes its place as one of three dates — the others are and — when Britain was narrowly saved from foreign conquest by a single victory. The 70th anniversary of the battle has been marked by the publication of three new but very different histories. Like Beevor, Holland prefers his history to be about people, and his dazzling cast of characters includes civilians and servicemen, men and women, young and old. Nor is Holland seduced by popular myth.
