'To be a Spitfire pilot was the ultimate. Especially when the King let the fighter pilots undo their top button. We knew then we'd made it.' Drawn from the Imperial War Museum's Sound Archive, here are the candid recollections of people who were there at Britain's hour of greatest danger, between Dunkirk and May 1941: German pilots at Dunkirk, Home Guards in Kent, Battle of Britain fighter pilots, firemen, ambulance drivers and nurses in the Blitz and the civilians living and working through wartime.
