The popular narrative of the Battle of Britain is that the RAF overcame the Luftwaffe by the use of radar, superior aircraft, and effective deployment of their fighters. This history of the pivotal four-month period in 1940 tells the story through the reminiscences of more than 70 of the RAF pilots who faced the everyday reality of the struggle, when the value of these determining factors was unclear and the outcome of the battle uncertain.
