Description: The gripping and heroic story of fighter pilots defending the skies over
Britain from unprecedented Nazi attack.

For 113 terrifying days in 1940, Nazi Germany’s air force, the Luftwaffe,
threw everything it had at Great Britain in hopes of early victory in World
War II. The task of defending southern England from airborne attack fell to
pilots in the Royal Air Force, supplemented in their darkest hour by more
than 100 flyers from Canada. These Canadians, some from famous families,
some straight off the farm, served in forty-seven different Battle of Britain
squadrons.

Now, for the first time, bestselling military historian Ted Barris’s tells the
riveting story of their crucial role in this do-or-die-battle: how they
accounted for 130 German aircraft destroyed, another thirty probably
destroyed and more than seventy damaged, with twenty pilots dying in
action and twelve awarded Distinguished Flying Crosses.The Battle of
Britain, And Canada’s Gallant Airmen is a must for enthusiasts of military
and aviation history.
