The Battle

Author(s): R.J. Overy

Second World War

This text is an attempt to recreate the circumstances of the summer of 1940, looking at questions the conflict raised, such as: how close did Britain really come to invasion?; what were Hitler and Churchill's intentions?; and what was the real effect of the battle on World War II's outcome?
