Item description for BATTLE OF BRITAIN by Christer Bergstrom...
The odds against Britain surviving the struggle with Hitler, after the fall of France, where extremely long. That Great Britain managed to survive the Battle for Britain is often said to be the result of a "few brave pilots..." who fought against overwhelming odds and won. This famous battle is being retold and analyzed in detail in this new book written by one of the worlds leading experts on the air war 1939 - 45, Christer Bergstrom. By using a large amount of private and official archives, Bergstrom has managed to secure previously unknown sources of information regarding the battle and to interview several of the veterans. The unique material utilized throughout the book gives the reader a secure feeling of "a job well done". The result is a book that questions many of the so called "truths" that have dominated other books about the Battle of Britain.
