Len Deighton’s bestselling history of the Battle of Britain is generally regarded as the finest there is.

“Brilliant analysis . . . provides a detailed account, fuller than any previously written.”–A.J.P. Taylor

Len Deighton’s skill as a novelist is used to show how the human factor influenced every twist and turn of this close-fought battle. His encyclopedic knowledge of technology makes clear how machines played a vital role in the fight for Britain’s survival. Here is the intensely vivid story of the men who developed radar, designed the high-speed monoplanes, fought each other in the skies and those who simply engaged in vicious vendetta.
