Voices from the Battle of Britain Summary


Voices from the Battle of Britain: Surviving Veterans Tell Their Story by Henry Buckton

The Battle of Britain was a critical period in the history of WWII when, thanks to the heroics of the RAF and their Spitfire and Hurricane aircraft, Britain managed to withstand the Luftwaffe onslaught and avoid the invasion that would have followed. This new account tells the story through the memories of surviving pilots and other military staff involved in every aspect of the effort. The story emerges through the authentic voices of the 'ordinary' participants and reveals their experiences and attitudes as well as their personal memories of the heroes who have traditionally been the protagonists in the story - pilots Douglas Bader, Johnnie Johnson, Adolf Galland, and war leaders Hugh Dowding and Winston Churchill. This title is compiled from new interviews with the surviving veterans with special access through The Battle of Britain Fighter Association. The summer of 2010 marks the 70th anniversary of the conflict.
