Deighton, Len.


1st ed., 1980. 224 pp., cold., + b&w photo-ills., + ills. D.j., 25 x 19cm. FINE. Two related cuttings tipped-in. In two highly acclaimed accounts ' Blitzkrieg and Fighter ' the author dealt in considerable detail with all the events that led up to the Battle of Britain and exploded the myths that have collected around that struggle. Now he adds a third dimension to the story of how, against all odds, the British succeeded in turning the prevailing tide of history and won the day. For here, in a series of 'snapshots', he shows us the reality of the most crucial battle of the Second World War as it was enacted in the flesh and blood by those on both sides who participated in the air, on the ground, in the planning rooms and in the homes. With a wealth of previously unpublished photographs.
