Strike From the Sky, by A McKee

Strike From the Sky, the story of the Battle of Britain
by Alexander McKee


The Battle of Britain was without precedent and of a kind unlikely ever to be repeated. Churchill compared it to meeting the Spanish Armada or facing Napoleon’s Grand Army in Boulogne. The narrative is based on first hand accounts from witnesses in both England and Europe, from RAF Air Marshals and Luftwaffe Generals to fighter pilots and bomber crews as well as personnel from hard-hit targets. It is both authentic and definitive.
