    The Battle of Britain officially lasted for 16 weeks in the summer of 1940, but the authors of this study point out that the British victory lay in 20 years of groundwork against significant opposition, involving keeping the RAF going in the 1920s, creating an efficient air-defence system and developing modern fighters in the 1930s. As well as assessing this background, Hough and Richards examine the campaign itself in detail and include a chapter of first-hand accounts.
