'One of the best loved children's writers.' (The Times)From the Back Cover:
In the summer of 1940, Hitler unleashed the full might of the Luftwaffe on Britain in an attempt to sweep the RAF from the skies and prepare the way for an invasion. The defiant response of Britain's heroic young pilots frustrated Hitler's plans and prompted him to turn his wrath on civilian targets, with devastating raids on London, Coventry and other cities in a vain attempt to break the spirit of the British people.
Narrated by Sir Anthony Quayle and Sir Michael Hordern, 'The Battle of Britain' and 'The Blitz' blend archive material, personal reminiscence and vivid historical reconstructions to create an evocative sound picture of the dramatic months of 1940-I when Britain stood alone.
“Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war”
