THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN JULY 10TH TO OCTOBER 31ST 1940

In the beginning of June 1940 Britain stood alone. Hitler's armies had stormed across Europe, Allied troops had been evacuated from the beaches at Dunkirk and France was in Nazi hands. With the world watching, Hitler now turned his attention to britain, the last bastion of freedom and detailed plans were drawn up for an invasion, code named "O[eration Sea Lion".

Before any German vessels could set sail, the Nazis needed total air supremacy and that required the destruction of the Royal Air Force, in charge of RAF Fighter Command was Air Chief Mafrshal Sir Hugh Dowding. He was an astute man who had already managed to withdraw precious aircraft from France before they were lost and sought to increase their number as fast as production would allow, in preparation for the battle which he knew would come. Dowding had also championed the installation of the pioneering science of Range Direction Finding, later to be called Radar. This enabled observers to detect enemy aerial formations and. by plotting their height and direction, allowed RAF Fighters to intercept with great efficiency.
