History of the Battle of Britain – Royal Air Force Museum

In this online exhibition we examine the economic factors and political forces that lead to the outbreak of World War 2 in 1939 and the Battle of Britain in 1940, before examining the phases of the Battle and its importance in preventing the invasion of the United Kingdom by German Forces in the autumn of that year.

As you probably know, I am a bit of a Battle of Britain nut. If the whole subject is a mystery to you, having a rummage around the RAF Museum microsite may help.
